RE: [SabreSailboat] Exciting news
Hearty congrats Laddie! She’s a beauty, absolutely! I know you feel the way we did 3 years ago when we closed on our S34 Mk II!
Love the Targa layout!
Now you need a Porsche Targa to go with her!

Just had our offer accepted on a beautiful Sabre 34 Targa!! Thanks to all who helped along the way. We're looking forward to a great summer on Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence.
If anyone is interested, HERE are some pics from my trip to Michigan to see her.
Anyone want to buy a Sabre28?
- Since I was doing everything else on the bottom, I tried an experiment. I primed the prop (Martec folder) & shaft with Vinylux primer, gave them a few coats of barrier coat, then sprayed with Trilux 33. That' s the drill Interlux recommends. It wasn't a big deal, since I was priming the keel and barrier coating the bottom at the time. I even got the Trilux as a leftover from someone else.I'll report later this season if it made a difference.Chesapeake & south sailors -Protect your hands when cleaning the prop. Minor barnacle cuts can and do get infected. In warm brackish water a cousin to tuberculosis bacteria causes a particularly nasty infection. I picked up a case in Florida and it took over a year to clear.

A trick I tried with great success Saturday is to clean the prop and

All the crud comes off, and you don't get bounced around (I snorkel,
so I am trying to stay in place). It takes off all the heaviest
buildups faster that wet/dry sandpaper.
It also is handy for getting into that nooks and crannies like behind
the strut or between the rudder and keel skeg.
And finally, it cleans up the bootstripe if some lowlife has dumped
their holding tanks leaving a mess on your lower hull.. :<(
Only complaint is they are 1" too short to fit a drywall sander
attachement (universal joint with screw connector for a pole) which
would make them the cat's meow for scrubbing the hull from a dock
after adding 3" of styrofoam to the pole at the attachment point.
This is the worst year I can remember for hull build up in New
England. In 2 weeks the hulls are black with crud and this is only

what my prop looked like after 7 months in the Chesapeake Bay. It is
a process that will take a few days to complete due to the multiple
coats required, bit I think it is worth the effort. Just make sure
that you thin the Vinyl Lux Prime wash (err on the side of too thin
rather than too thick) and make sure this coat is put on as thin as
you can. If you put it on too thick the failure mode will be the
Vinyl Lux Prime Wash loosing it's adhesion to the bronze running gear.
