Armstrong Bracket with lots of corrosion and peeling paint was removed from a 1979 23' Seacraft for a refresh.
The outboard was unrigged and placed on a rack, and then the bracket itself was unbolted and pried off the transom.
After a thorough sandblasting, the bracket was washed and cleaned to remove debris and dust. Once dry any rough spots were sanded smooth, and then the bare aluminum was coated with Alumiprep 33 etching solution.
After the Alumiprep process was complete and the bracket was dried again it was sprayed with Alexseal CorSpec 135 Zinc Chromate primer.
Once the Zinc Chromate had cured it was then primed again with Alexseal 442 Epoxy Primer. Any filling and fairing was then done, and another coat of 442 Epoxy Primer was applied.
Several coats of Alexseal Jade Mist were sprayed on as topcoat.
Finally, the non-skid areas were taped off and non-skid was applied to the deck surfaces.
A new Armstrong deck plate finished her off nicely.
