    Picture of the day

    Looks like the weather from the midwest to the east seems to be nasty, hopefully it won't be much longer for you guys. Here's a picture from today's run to Nest Key. We have never had it so smooth so we decided to stay another week,maybe by then it will be better at home too.

    ? on Groco strainer and seacock early 20'

    Does anyone know size and model of the Groco strainer and seacock on a 70's- late 80's narrow 20? I'm not near the boat but need to get some parts. I know it uses 1" hose so for the seacock I'm thinking BV-1000? and SA-1000 for the strainer? Thanks

    Hatch question on a 20

    I'm not sure how these are supposed to look. The rear one is delaminating and like the one in this picture a PO has screwed a cross brace under the center edge on both of them.

    How much paint for a repaint?

    I'm getting to the point that I have to start thinking about colors and how much paint to buy for the 20. I know the deck color will be different from the hull. The hull will only be painted to the waterline. Any one have an idea on how much it will take?

    20 footer rub rail size?

    As I start to work on this boat project I think it might be best to replace the rub rail and rope insert. I did a search but could not find its size in the archives. Does any one know the size and who's got a good price. I did measure 48'10" on the outside of the existing rail. Thanks
