    Re: Starcraft Progress

    Hey Robby, tell her the same thing I did. Honey I can take it down every day after I use it as I drilled some holes into the driveway that I stick the pipes into and I can just pull them out when done.

      Robby I forgot to tell you there is a 65 starcraft cabin cruiser on the ATL craigs list for only 850.00 that did not look to bad. and what is worse is there is a 63 starcraft fiberglass runabout also on there for 600.00 that I am trying to trade a bike for. I must really be going off the deep end

        LOL... I know I have bought two boats within a year and been able to keep them..... The Mrs. must be up to something or wanting something. I wish I would have saw the cabin cruiser I would have had my dad go pick it up, still might... Just got to figure out how to get it back to Texas and break it to the wife.


        WOW! The cabin cruiser is super nice!!!! Going to call dad and see if he is interested.... Who knows it could be my inheritance.
        Your boat may be new, but I'm not making payments every time I go to the lake!

            More work today as I continued to clean the under deck area. I got all the gunk out and just need to do some heavy scrubbing. the hardest part was getting all the junk out from under the stringers. it took a lot of blowing and sucking with the air nozzle and shop vac.

                Another shot and now I am glad I removed the splash well as it was a lot easier to get in there and clean it really good.

                    Re: Starcraft Progress

                    I would use TSP to clean it and use a stiff bristle brush. Let it dry for a couple of days then Gluvit.

                    I'm just sayin...

                            Hello all, well I did not get a lot done this weekend as I had other projects to do so I was only able to clean a few of the trim parts that I have pictures of. I was wondering if anyone has painted the aluminum trim parts that do not clean up really good and what you used and thanks in advance for advice.

                                Have you tried this? I want to try it on mine, but need someone to be a guinea pig first.
