    Aluminum vs SS bimini frames

    Zombie thread comes back to life... That's some nice work there. Where would one go to find such mounting hardware and tubing? Surely that isn't electical conduit from the local hardware store yes?

    Dock lines Q’s

    Good stuff here. I had a question as well: I've bought 100' of 3/8", 3 strand nylon, 4 snubbers and 4 thimbles (going to teach myself to splice) to make permanent dock lines for my C250. Need to pick up some shackles too. The harbor master suggested a loop of chain to tie to the dock cleats...

    Full size porta potty?

    Thanks for the input everyone. We wound up ordering two from amazon to um... try on? And we wound up going with this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CKR3VYT?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details Weight, bowl size, and capacity seemed about right for us. Now I need to go to home depot to...

    Tips For A Great Buff & Wax

    Duly noted and thanks! Any way to know if wet sanding is necessary? Like I said, the hull is pretty chalky.

    Tips For A Great Buff & Wax

    Interesting, thanks. You just cut, buffed, polished and waxed over the dealer applied stickers you mean? Edited: didn't refresh in time to see your response Parsons. Have you used cutting compounds over the decals too? I think I may have to get aggressive with the degree of oxidation on my...

    The ladder kinda reminds me of this: Seriously. What kind of thunder would you have to call down to get this kind of passive aggressive middle finger?

    Tips For A Great Buff & Wax

    Good stuff in here, but I didn't find much about what to do with dealer applied stickers and registration stickers and numbers and the like. Should I blue tape over them and then proceed as advised?

    Replacement cockpit ladder

    Hello again all. We've made the purchase and are the proud owners of a 98 C250 wing keel. The previous owner has removed the inboard diesel and faired in the hull. This makes access to the rear berth much easier, but the new cabin access ladder is flimsy and needs replacement. Does anyone...

    Full size porta potty?

    Straight from the Head Mistress herself. Thank you! I will certainly look into it, and I'm open to any and all suggestions that don't involve onboard holding tanks/straight up marine heads.

    Full size porta potty?

    Howdy all. One of the many projects for the new boat is the loo. We currently have a new porta potty in the head, but I can't help notice how small the actual bowl is on just about every 'throne' out there. Does anyone know of a mfr that makes a porta potty with a seat size and depth similar...

    Dehumidifier Suggestions

    Thanks again for the suggestions. Sounds like it may be at least a viable alternative to spending 200+ on solar vents that seem to crap out after a couple seasons.

    Dehumidifier Suggestions

    Nice, thanks for the link! If I go that route I'll report back. Tangential question... do marinas get twitchy if you leave your boat plugged in for a couple weeks at a time while away? I'm thinking of sealing up the boat while away (2-3 weeks at a time), setting up the dehumidifier to drain...

    Aluminum vs SS bimini frames

    Thanks everyone, decisions to make for sure. I was able to find a model for ~$500 but still. I can buy 3 of the aluminum frame jobs for that price. The slit videos (do we do phrasing here?) are also going to prove very useful. Thanks yet again rgranger. Best sealant for the inevitable...
