SeaArk Rescue

Post by Tin Ark »

Just picked up an 1872 SeaArk and it's a full out rescue project. Rather than documenting a rescue with photos, thought I'd start a YouTube channel that documents the project from day one. And so it begins.

Looks like a fun project. Hell of deal on the hull and trailer!

Out of curiously, how are you planning. Taking the boat off the trailer and storing the boat while the trailer is getting rebuilt?

I’ll certainly be following along your project. Looking forward to watching more videos and following your progress.

Thanks, yes a buddy has a lift at his house so going to get the boat off the trailer and head to St Pete to have the trailer work done, then to Ocala to have it media blasted and primed for paint.

Here's the 1872 I redid many years ago. I actually forgot my log in credentials so just registered a new account.

I think I heard in your Day 4 video that you were going to use King Starboard for the poling platform. Because that stuff is going to be pretty slippery, are you going to cover it, score it, or something? Additionally, the two supports are pretty far apart. Are you concerned it will sag in the middle? Don't get me wrong, I think it is a great product and will last forever. I've just not seen it used that way before.

Updated, after additional research and input from a member over at The Hull Truth the Starboard is not only costly but NOT as stable since it would lack support for my weight, I am 175. So the new plan is to use 3/4" Marine grade Okume plywood and use a 3/8" roundover router bit on both sides to create round edges. Then sand prime with Interlux epoxy primer followed by two-part with silica powder nonskid and weighs a lot less than Starboard.
