First, apologies for the delay in posting updates recently, but I have been rather busy of late. No excuses, I am going to have to dedicate more time to building my boat as I am falling behind my schedule and also update this site more often.
Two and a half years in the water and still the Pure Seal seems to be working well. But to be honest I already knew that. Before I went to the boat show I wanted to be sure the stuff was still working as I knew I would be seeing the supplier of it. At this stage he is still not convinced he will import it again due to the damage the first faulty batch did to his business. Quite understandable. But so far I cannot fault this batch. It is still performing just as it did after just 3 months in the water. The second picture below is of the plate after 2 weeks in the water after I gave it a clean 2 weeks ago but the first pic is of the panel after 3 months. The 2 pics to the right of the cleaned panels. I have noticed that the tiny hairline scratches need deeper cleaning now that I am finding a little more difficult with just my finger, but a light rub with a soft towel and the panels are as clean today as they were the day they went in 30 months ago.
As a result of the Sanctuary Cove boat show I have made a couple of sales of hatches that pretty much cleaned me out of stock. I also have a number of people that expressed an interest in ordering at the show so I am waiting a couple of weeks more for these results to come in and I will be placing my next order. For anyone that wants indent pricing for hatches on this next order (will be placed end of June and should be arriving in Australia early August) you can contact me by email or phone (0413 101 475) to arrange what you need. For those that don’t know, indent is where you give me your order and deposit (50%) prior to me placing the order with the factory and I give you about 25% – 30% less (so about 10% -15% on my cost). So if you want to get in on this shipment contact me know in the next couple of weeks.
Hopefully this weekend I will have the rear bulkhead glassed and the ply pads in place. Then I will get on with the loose end jobs that need doing and decoring the hull around the dagger case holes in readiness for glassing them in.
