Crap Shoot

by Gil
(Medford Lakes NJ)

I am new to the wood boat world.

I have owned 17' - 28' glass sail and power boats.

I purchased "Crap Shoot" a year ago and fell in love.

"Crap Shoot" is a young 1960 17' Thompson w/outboard.

She is very clean and has been on a trailer for about 3 yrs.

There are very minor repairs, or actually touch ups it needs.

There are a couple of questions I would like to ask on the best ways to do these.

I am scraping the bottom and there are seams that need to be filled.

What is the best caulk to use?

Also, what is the best bottom paint to use; ablative, barrier coat, Hard paint?

Hi Gil,

Those Thompsons are great boats, is she a "Sea Coaster"?

You say she just needs some 'touch ups', is it just the paint?
