I've been on the waiting list for a while, but just got word I can have a slip this season down on the Outer Banks. My 2310 has never been in a slip, so no bottom paint, no auto bilge pump, just the stock on all the time, or off all the time bilge pumps, using the switch. I need some advice for getting ready for this. My plan is to leave her in the water April/May through the end of the year, and then trailer home for winterizing and storage at home thru the winter months. Thanks for your help!

Make darn sure you remove the mold wax, see

Then I'd use a different color paint for the 1st coat (say a hard epoxy) and then a diffferent color bottom paint "if" using an ablative. When you see the 'other' color starting to show through ... you know the paint is thin in that area.

no auto bilge pump, just the stock on all the time, or off all the time bilge pumps, using the switch.
Do a search on the terms 'bilge pump switch' and you'll find 1/2 an hours reading that should help you (click search for all terms)

Please come back with any other questions!

Hey Dabbie7, If you'd like I will give you the name and number of a guy that comes to the marina and takes care of most our needs. He'll come there and do the work except for bottom paint which he takes to his shop. Send me an e-mail and Let me know if I can help.

How can you get in touch with me? let me say this: We at SSBC are very happy to have you and your parker. Looking forward to seeing you down and in the slip. As you know we like Parkers there also.

Yours Truly, Marina Manager

Coszie, good to hear from you and nice to know my fellow boat clubber's are already looking out for me! I'd definately like to know who you use and what you have done each season. Should I have the bottom painted before putting her in this season? It's still bare fiberglass. How do you have your bilge pumps rigged to handle rain/storm water etc.? Do you have a layout of the marina that shows slip locations etc. Thanks
