Well if you insist on DIY you can always sandblast and send off for hot dip galvanizing...but it's probably cheaper to get new ones!

I finally convinced my wife to come out on our center console for overnight, once she saw she could hide sheltered under the bow dodger, she was all in. I packed a cooler and a good bottle of wine. We so need some alone time...

removed all the screws holding down center console and started injecting epoxy resin thickened with cabo-sil into the holes in the deck..

UPDATE: ended up making 3/4" holes halfway through the deck on most of the holes....used straight epoxy resin first to soak into the wood, then came back with thickened epoxy.

The worst hole was enlarged to 1" 1/8...nasty rotten wood...picked at the wet stuff until I got to the skin underneath, picked some more all around the hole. Used a wet vac on the hole for hours until wood was dry. Laid down 1708 material in the hole (covering the screw hole) and used epoxy resin for each layer of 1708 until nearly flush with top of deck, then finished up with thickened epoxy.

Now the screws will have something to grab onto that is NOT wood.

On Saturday, moved from the dry rack to a lift slip. Should permit me to use the boat during those random warm weekends in the winter. Not to mention always having an assigned slip at the marina, etc. Excited about the transition.

Also ordered six new spark plugs that I hope to install next weekend.

I've seen cast stainless like that before, it looks like cast aluminum, it just doesn't have the structural strength. Cast stainless is generally rather weak and fragile.

I put the covers on the Skeeter and the Wahoo. It's gonna freeze tonight and maybe rain.

Also plan to go through boxes and boxes of lures from days gone by in prep for a fishin' tackle garage sale.

I live in Spicewood TX, on Lake Travis in NW Travis County. It's in the Texas Hill Country about 30 miles NW of Austin TX. The forecast I just got said no rain, but a possible low of 36. The woman and I spent the day taking plants into the house and covering up the outside babies with plant fabric.

The past week has Jus Teasin is being prepared for new bottom paint and boot stripes, by stripping off all the old bottom paint.
And also a few hours of hull compounding.

Wow. I live in Florida, I never would have thought Texas would have a freeze so early in the year. Well, global freezing I guess... lol

Made the last fishing trip of the season. Wind kicked up and got blown out so brought her home, winterized the motor, and started removing the rest of the gear. This season seemed too short.
