Does anyone know how to remove clear anodizing that has experience doing it. The only way I can get it off is sanding. Looking for a chemical way to remove or something easier than sanding.

Free 1960's 16 ft flatbottom with Merc outboard

Thu, 12/18/2014 - 17:12
A buddy thought I might be interested in this and had me come look at it at a house he's working at.. .. the boat I'd say is an early 1960's hull with a mid 60's early 70's Merc outboard.. the last time the boat was used was in 2005. was running at the time but sitting the past 9-10 yrs.. the hull is Junk but trailer and engine might be worth something to someone.. he wants it gone so if anyone is interested I will give you his contact info.. Boat is located off Fruitridge blvd in Sacramento. it will need 2 13 inch tires to be towed.. trailer looked pretty solid but is starting to show rust in places.. anyway its Free for the taking.. garbage inside and all .. here's pics I took of it Attached Thumbnails

Controlling porpoise with down pedal and setup

Thu, 12/18/2014 - 16:36
I'll start by saying, this is my first time around learning to drive and set up a vdrive. I have no problem doing the "trial and error" thing to learn to launch a boat. But when it starts to porpoise at 60mph+, I want to figure out safely how to deal with it. Basically, I know my boat can be set up to not hop around at speed. Ha, I just don't know how to do it. For now, I can keep it stable by using what seems to me like a lot of down pedal. About the time she starts to take a set, it starts to porpoise, which I've read is fairly typical (until time is put in to the setup). I'm looking to be able to run around the 90 mph mark without being on the down pedal and plowing with the nose.

I know all this won't happen over night. For now my plan is seat time, seat time, seat time, seat time. Just don't want to get spit out learning WTF I'm doing. I'll list as much info as I can about what I have. If anyone has any questions or suggestions on how to get this thing to settle down, please throw 'em out there. Thanks.
