Re painting old boat... rustoelum... questions

Catman, Any chance you have a photo of the boat before you started painting? I have a 1974 Sears 12' boat that is in serious need of repainting. I picked up the a year ago and used it for the entire season in all the lakes by me. I actually planned on just painting the inside or doing a rhino liner...

Re painting old boat... rustoelum... questions

I just got done painting it but haven't added a clear coat. I did find a satin finish acrylic clear coat that I plan to spray on in a little while. Here is the boat out to get some sun before work, then ill have to put it back out in the sun tomorrow morning. https://i1230.photobucket.com/albums/ee...

Re painting old boat... rustoelum... questions

Thanks. I scrubbed it, sanded it, wiped clean a couple times with clean damp rag, put a little etching primer on the worn areas, and am now getting ready for the first coat. I can't find a flat clear coat in a rattle can. I was just gonna do gloss, since the boat has very few dents and would look go...

Re painting old boat... rustoelum... questions

Got some 400 sandpaper to rough up the old paint on my late '60s (I think, no hull number) McKenzie Cherokee 13 ft V hull. The old paint is adherent, no chipping or flaking, only a few small spots have been scratched or rubbed off from rocks or the trailer. The rest of the paint is solid white with ...

Gears or prop slipping, advice?

I don't think the line ruined the seal, at least no oil has come out, hopefully no water has gone in either. I ran the boat on Sunday on the river, about 15-20 miles. Maybe half of that was at full speed and the rest was slowing down or dragging the boat through shallow riffles. The motor didn't sli...

Gears or prop slipping, advice?

Update - Just took off the prop. The hub looks in perfect condition but I marked it with white paint just in case. Think this might have been the problem? https://i1230.photobucket.com/albums/ee485/catman529/Mobile%20Uploads/imagejpeg_2-3.jpg https://i1230.photobucket.com/albums/ee485/catman529/Mobi...

Gears or prop slipping, advice?

Thanks all for the advice. I don't think the gears are bad... a few nights ago I put it in gear and turned the prop (Forgot to pull the plug, oops) but it wasn't hard to turn the engine with the prop, so it's hard to tell that way if anything is slipping. I could hear the compression release in the ...

Gears or prop slipping, advice?

all right, here is the parts list taken on my cell phone camera, hope it is clear enough. https://i1230.photobucket.com/albums/ee485/catman529/Mobile%20Uploads/imagejpeg_2-2.jpg Part 3032 is the Clutch/Pin kit. You can see the forward/reverse gears as well. Which parts in this diagram do I need to c...

Gears or prop slipping, advice?

I would say that anytime you put power to your prop if the gears it would slip. If the hub in the prop was bad it may not act up until you got it under a load the hub is an easier fix, right? I hope so cause if you are right then that's likely the problem. When it started acting up, I could run at ...

Gears or prop slipping, advice?

my boat doesn't get on plane with it anyway, so I can't tell by that. I can't tell for sure, but when the engine revs and the boat slows, there might be a bit of a grinding noise but it's not that noticeable.

I don't think it's coming out of gear, it sounds like the gears might be slipping.
