The following are a result of some of my research, some are redundant
most are not. I look forward to some of these making it to my
"favorite" sailing index pages;}

Some Tips and How-To's: Painting Topsides
Yes Interlux had a painting guide but this is worth the read too.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
The proper way to check for paint adhesion is to (using a razor blade)
cut a series of slices thru the painted surface about 1/16" apart
about 3/4" long.

Next cut a second set of slices at 90 degrees to the first set (a
checkerboard pattern). Press a strip tape (don't remember the exact
tape description but a good masking tape should suffice) firmly across
the pattern. Remove the tape. There should be very little removal of
paint. If there is lots of paint missing (several squares) you don't
have good adhesion.

International Paint makes a product called Interline 925 that is an
excellent high solids Epoxy Coating. I cant seem to find any data on
it as to service temperature. The only problem with it is that the
steel must be grit blasted to near white condition before application,
and and surface rust that flashes must be removed before application.
Interline 850 is also a good product and is a lot easier to use than
925, but 925 is what I use on all my water tanks.

I am sure that if you can find an International Paint rep in your area
he could look at your application and guide you in the right
direction.

Make Your Ice Chest Colder
"One way to improve the efficiency of your icebox or chest -- without
adding more insulation to the outside -- is to reduce the amount of
air inside. .... solved the problem by taking several large
zipper-lock self-sealing plastic bags and filling them with the
Styrofoam pellets used to pad packages. Fit as many of the
peanut-shaped pellets into the bags as possible, then seal the
opening. Lay the bags on top of the food in the icebox, covering the
entire area -- as high as space allows under the lid."

Wind generators
Note: the 'price for watt' calculation is worked out using the rated
power output at wind speed, as their is no standard yet these
calculations are a little inaccurate as different manufactures use a
different wind speed to calculate the power rating of the generator.

Gelled deep cycle: 2-5 years
Deep cycle (L-16 type etc): 4-8 years
Rolls-Surrette premium deep cycle: 7-15 years
Industrial deep cycle (Crown and Rolls 4KS series): 10-20+ years

Do you have links to sites that match up boats that
need crew with people who want to crew? I can't seem
to google them up. Thanks again,

" Get sailing experience w/ deliveries....
http://www.st-barts.com/deliveries.html

St. Barts Yachts is a dealer/broker in Charleston, SC and jax, FL.
They are also the delivery company for Beneteau Sailboats to the
Moorings in the Caribbean. They have contacted me several times via
email to see if I wa interested in various deliveries. However, my
current schedule does not allow me to do this. I believe they deliver
most boats during the hurricane season, and therefore your schedule
needs to be somewhat flexible as the trips may take longer than
expected. I don't know what the pay is, but I do know they fly you
back home at the end of the delivery.
I hope this helps some of y'all."
