I was in Porto barrios yesterday. It is 70 km = 44 miles with local van transportation for 7$. And i manage to get me primer (upper galon on photo) for half of price of Pettit premier – American paint brand that i could get it here in Rio. The anti-fouling (anti algas paint) was also for 20% cheaper. I went also there a week ago for information and then when i was asking Thomas ( boat builder) abot quality of this paint:” It is the best what you can get here!”. Check it at Transocean. For the Rio boaters: google for “Sur color puerto barrios”.
And i was looking to get me two bronze bolts for my earthing plate. No chance. At the end i have bought me one bronze earthing rode for 8$. But Thomas did manage to find similar bolts. I will have just to adapt them to my needs. So i did left this rode to him in exchange for bolts. I will write more about it in other occasion. We help each other as we can. When i will answer to Aljosa to his comment why was i supporting the deck.
“We help each other as we can.” It sounds like having a better world.
