I don’t think 5200 is a path that I would go. Just do what you need to to get a good bottom paint there. (Broom stick with a rag around it covered in bottom paint to get it up in the trunk.)

I have never had one break off, but I have had some that sure didn't want to let go and really seemed like it was going to break. Never have figured out what's up with that.

Correct. No thermostat on the SBC. Jersey speed skiffs are pretty much “trailer queens” that are either competitive race boats, or for having fun on a Saturday afternoon so to speak. Many of them...
