    Motor Flushing? Who else flushes their motor while in a slip? I have never done this. Should I be doing it?

    Justin does my hull cleaning monthly and Julia washes the boat two times a month and details twice a year. Both are dependable and do good work.

    I don't think it makes a difference in the water, really! The most important thing you can do to your boat when you keep it in a slip is USE IT OFTEN!

    Once I got rid of the kids I could afford to do it this way. If I adopted you I'd probably have to sell the boat.

    You are a good sport Yale...Btw, did you use a surveyor when you purchase
    the Riley?

    My brother is kicking around between a new or used 30 footer. Sure would like to have a good surveyor if he's to go used.

    I used a Newport Beach surveyor. Insurance Co. will probably want a surveyor report.

    The Mrs. and I have been talking about getting another boat (in addition to the 23í) because we pretty much spend at least one day a weekend down in Pt. Loma. The idea is that we could use it as kind of a second home, stay the weekend, etc. So weíve been looking at boats for sometime and just havenít found the right one yet. Itís something we really want to do this summer so sheís talked me into slipping Hamachi Girl. So as much as I didnít want to put bottom paint on her Iím going to have to do it.

    Do you think putting an Epoxy Barrier Coating on first is a must do? I know Jay REALLY loves epoxy barrier coating. After the barrier coating use an ablative bottom paint? I see the boat being in the water for this summer minimum and spending the winter on the trailer.

    Best thing we ever did...we spend pretty much every weekend on the boat
    rain or shine.

    Sorry, I cannot help with the barrier coat question...however, we did not use barrier coat on my brother's boat. We got mixed info from yes you need it to with the better gel-coat now you don't...

    Trinidad SR was highly recommended; it's a hard bottom paint and so far so good!
