Yes. Like my wooden house!

It gets lots of sunshine, but doesn't get immersed in water.....hence my plan to use house paint top sides.

There is even a whole west facing wall that hasn't been painted for 25yrs, and which is still intact...! Maybe I shouldn't bother painting my boat at all?!

Ok. I'll watch the YouTube and think more....

But, I do enjoy "piquing" Neil's comments, and house paint on boats always seems to set him off. He does , however , have a very beautifully finished boat.

Another anology relates to my recently deceased mother - at 90ish, she decided to replace her front picket fence, and decided to use pre-primed jarrah pickets. She then asked me to paint them properly, so they would "last".

I declined, on the grounds that jarrah, pre-primed or not, would last for ages, and even the primer on the fence would probably outlast her.

Anyway, hoping to get out on the water Sunday.

Hi AA,
Think about this... your top sides will get 100% more direct sun light than your hull ever will.

Did a bit of sanding,  bogging and priming this weekend.... and am actually using turps based house paint on  top sides, despite the cackles from you guys.  Might use some boat grade polyester on hull, but ain't got anywhere near that yet. Probs next summer!!

Aiming to get out in the water next weekend, weather permitting.....

G'day Guy,
How stupid is society that we cannot run coal , wind, solar and nuclear in cogeneration ?
Coal is finite but efficient -wind and solar infinite but variable - nuclear safe and so efficient .
You can get a small nuclear reactor which will fit in to a shipping container that will power a town .
Take pollies out of politics and stuff the sooky boneheads that won't keep up with technology !

Now - back to wonderful boating and calm seas   Wink

Hi Neil,
What an absolute joke wind generated electricity is in SA. What an absolute shame SA closed most of their power stations because of pressure from the so called greenies.

The management from the huge Adelaide Convention Centre were having to constantly apologise to the delegates and guest speakers for the flickering lights and general power issues during the 3 day event.
Attending the event were Professors, Students, CEO's and Government representatives from places such as Asia, Europe and America. The quality and reliability of the electricity supply was most embarrassing for the Aussies attending the event.

Back to: The cost of booze.
On Tuesday evening, I was at the Adelaide Casino with a business collegue. It was my shout, I ordered 1 x Scotch (on the rocks) and 1 x Peroni draught beer.
Guess what?  $34.00  As you can guess, we left there pretty quick.
