Prindle Rebuild  Bottom

Go to page [-1] 1 - 2:

  • pbegleA bottom job should cost you no more than $100 and an hours work if done by yourself. Qt of epoxy & pumps from Jamestown Dist. and 3" fiberglass tape. Brushes from Home Depot. Take off rudders, flip boat & go to work making sure to do a "dry" job rather than sloppy job that leaves too much resin dripping down hull side. Pete


    If you use the West System rollers, people will think you vacuum-bagged it. They do an excellent job of only applying what you need.

  • From personal experience, I would replace the bolts attaching the dolphin striker. I have proven that they can shear.

    Thanks... I have already looked after them and all the others....

    Had a friend that on the USS JFK back when the F14 was the pride of the fleet... He use to work on them and told me they had protocol for the F-14 called "Exercising the Nuts" that is they was loosen, inspect, replace and "regupe" (anit-sieze) if needed all critical fasteners.
