Trump. The most opaque president ever!
He's been whitewashed with Zinc White paint. With a touch-up of Titanium White. He's a White Wall of Opacity and subterfuge. Maybe he's the Wizard of OZ. I saw it only once, on TV, @ 83 MacDougal Street, South of Bleecker. Didn't like it. But I liked the Witch melting from water.

Ships are usually steel, and are painted to protect the steel from the salt water that causes corrosion. The propellers are usually bronze, with a sacrificial zinc to prevent electrolysis from destroying the propeller. I’m not sure of the procedures of commercial ships, but my husband, who was in the U.S. Coast Guard, on an icebreaker that spent six months in the Arctic keeping the shipping lanes free of ice - as best they can - told me that there was a pretty constant maintenance protocol. Chipped paint, rust streaks, were touched up while they were at sea, to keep corrosion from getting too bad. The part of the ship best-protected from corrosion is the hull, a good thing because it’s harder to keep track of what is occurring out of sight. You’ll see some pretty well-maintained ships, looking clean and spiffy. Then there are the old ships, outdated and sold to the small, fringe shipping companies that don’t have the budget for the best maintenance procedures. Usually a lot more rust streaks on them. Corrosion is the enemy of all those ships at sea. Trash in the sea, including semi-submerged containers, oil barrels, logs, can damage the paint job on the ships’ hulls, exposing the bare metal to corrosion. It’s a constant job to keep on top of it all.
Aesthetic beauty aside - the engineering marvel is symbolic of a city and region that continues to innovate. Some of the rich history is simply in the details surrounding it's need, construction and everyday use. The real "Golden Gate" is the strait that the bridge spans. It was first named "Chrysopylae," meaning "golden gate," by Captain John C. Fremont in 1846. Size:, The Golden Gate Bridge was the longest span in the world from its completion in 1937 until the Verrazano Narrows Bridge was built in New York in 1964. Today, it still has the ninth-longest suspension span in the world. Facts: Total length: Including approaches, 1.7 miles (8,981 feet or 2,737 m) Middle span: 4,200 feet (1,966 m) Width: 90 feet (27 m) Clearance above the highwater (average): 220 feet (67 m) Total weight when built: 894,500 tons(811,500,000 kg) Total weight today: 887,000 tons (804,700,000 kg). Weight reduced because of new decking material Towers:, 746 feet (227 m) above the water 500 feet (152 m) above the roadway Each leg is 33 x 54 feet (10 x 16 m) Towers weigh 44,000 tons each (40,200,000kg). There are about 600,000 rivets in EACH tower. ,Construction Details:, One of the most interesting Golden Gate Bridge facts is that only eleven workers died during construction, a new safety record for the time. In the 1930s, bridge builders expected 1 fatality per $1 million in construction costs, and builders expected 35 people to die while building the Golden Gate Bridge. One of the bridge's safety innovations was a net suspended under the floor. This net saved the lives of 19 men during construction, and they are often called the members of the "Half Way to Hell Club." Steel Facts: Made in New Jersey, Maryland and Pennsylvania Shipped through the Panama Canal Total weight of steel: 83,000 tons (75,293,000 kg) ,Cable Facts:, Two main cables pass over the tops of the main towers and are secured in concrete anchorages at each end. Each cable is made of 27,572 strands of wire. There are 80,000 miles (129,000 km) of wire in the two main cables, and it took over six months to spin them Cable diameter (including wrapping): 36 3/8 inches (0.92 m) Cable length: 7,260 feet (2,332 m) ,Lights: 128 lights are installed on the bridge roadway. They are 250-watt high pressure sodium lamps installed in 1972 The 24 tower sidewalk lights are 35-watt low pressure sodium lamps 12 light illuminate each tower, 400 watts each, and an airway beacon tops each tower ,Traffic:, About 41 million per year (both N and S bound) 33 million crossing the first year it was open Closures: The bridge has been closed three times for weather, for gusting winds over 70 mph. It closed briefly for visits by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and French President Charles DeGaulle. It was also closed on its fiftieth birthday Important Dates:, May 25, 1923: The California state legislature passes a law creating the Golden Gate Bridge and Highway District August 27, 1930: Joseph B. Strauss submits final plans November 4, 1930: $35 million bond issue approved by the six counties in the District, by a vote of 145,667 to 46.954 January 5, 1933: Construction begins May 27, 1937: Bridge opens to pedestrians May 28, 1937: Bridge open to automobiles. The toll was 50 cents one way, $1 round trip and 5 cents surcharge if there were more than 3 passengers February 22, 1985: The one-billionth car crosses the bridge. Toll is $2 southbound on Friday and Saturday, $1 otherdays. No northbound toll May 28, 1987: Bridge closed to vehicles for its fiftieth birthday. An estimated 300,000 pedestrians jammed the bridge September 2 2008: Toll increased to $6 southbound. No northbound toll. Paint:, The Golden Gate Bridge's paint color is orange vermillion, also called international orange. Architect Irving Morrow selected the color because it blends with the bridge's setting The bridge was fully painted when it was first built and then touched up for the next 27 years. In 1965, the original paint was removed because of corrosion and replaced with a inorganic zinc silicate primer and an acrylic emulsion top coat, a project that took 30 years. Today, painters touch up the paint continuously. 38 painters work on the bridge, along with 17 ironworkers who replace corroding steel and rivets.
It’s as complex as you want to make it, which is to say “that depends on your circumstances”. I own a diesel-powered sailboat; the diesel powers us into and out of docks and anchorages, and also charges the batteries through the alternator. I installed it in the boat myself and made sure it was fully documented so I could do all but the most complex repairs, as we live aboard it and (when COVID subsides) we intend to circle the world in it. So, the basics for me might exceed yours. They include a) timely oil changes b) timely oil and secondary fuel filter changes (the fuel filter mounted on the engine) c) alternator tensioning and belt replacement as suggested in the manual d) primary fuel filter monitoring and changes as needed, with a backup filter at the ready. Replace air filter as suggested by the manual. e) coolant replacement as suggested by the manual. Examination of pencil zincs in the heat exchanger; replace as needed f) yearly inspection of all fuel, coolant, exhaust and water hoses, connections and hose clamps and replacement if flaws are found. g) changing of hydraulic shifter fluid as needed as per the manual and via knowing the fuel levels h) torquing to spec of motor mounts, all clamps, all block bolts, including head bolts, all plugs and checking to see if block seals are failing in any way. i) examination of the wiring harness (may include refreshing of dielectric paste to arrest corrosion) and examination of starter and alternator for loose wires or loose contacts and/or fuses. May include some multimeter tasks. j) removal and examination of the engine control panel for loose or corroded connectors or connections. k) annual replacement of the raw (sea) water pump impeller and examination of the impeller plate for unusual scoring or failing gaskets. l) examine and service the drive train, including the thrust-bearing mounted CV joint (torque to spec); check the dripless shaft seal (make sure it’s seated properly and the vent line is secured); examine the cutlass bearing for wear; and service (lube and polish) the feathering prop and change the anode as needed. That’s off the top of my head. If I had a diesel pickup, say, I wouldn’t have a pump responsible for putting cool sea water through a heat exchanger with copper tubes full of Dex. I would have a fan in front of a radiator full of Dex and a cam or belt on the block would circulate that. So I would check that the fan was fine. Lastly, I clean the block and use high-temp touch-up paint to deal with scratches and dings. My engine bay is beneath a hatch in the pilothouse; I can’t avoid stepping on it to get down there. But if you wanted your diesel to last as long as they are capable of lasting, you would do most of the things I do and keep enough filters, zincs, belts and fuses to keep yourself out of the shop and going strong.
This would be the trip of a lifetime! I did something similar between 2010–2014. Harbor hopping is more fun, but takes much longer than heading out to sea and taking the trade winds. If you want to stop at night at anchor when possible and avoid periods of bad weather, I would want 3 months or more to get to San Francisco from Miami. Traversing the Panama Canal can take over a week alone. You will probably average 100nm a day on a 40ft sailboat if you stop to sleep on occasion at Bays and Harbors. If your sailing near shore, you will not have any trade winds, only thermal, so on many occasions you will need to motorsail. Typically afternoons thro evenings are best. Also be aware, that when you go thro the Panama Canal and start heading north, you will be sailing directly into the prevailing weather and current, meaning you have to motor sail. If you only have sail power, it will require you to sail the pacific high via Hawaii then NE up to latitude 50 before heading SE for San Francisco. This will take another few weeks at least. So ensure you have a strong engine and can maintain 5–6 knots in all conditions. You will need to carry around 50 gallons of extra fuel for unpopulated areas like Baja. Consider shipping the boat if you have trouble with long sea passages and rough weather. Choosing the right time of year is critical to avoid hurricanes below latitude 24 and strong Pacific NW winds. Planning your route and getting permits/visas will take time. Here is my 42ft boat anchored of a small village in southern Mexico, fitted out for the 2000nm passage north to San Francisco. It took me a year to prepare for the trip. Here are some of the items I added to the stock boat to prepare it for the long offshore passages. Icom M802 SSB and pactor USB modem so I can receive weather faxes on my Dell netbook PC. Insulated antenna on backstay. Iridium 9555 Satellite phone with data kit. I like that I can receive text messages from a regular cell phone for free EPIRB with GPS for emergencies. Spectra 200T water-maker Webasto 16000 BTU reverse cycle A/C heating/cooling system for use in Marinas New North 125% Norlam laminate head-sail. AirBreeze 160W wind-vane to complement my 3 solar panels. Viking RescYou 4 man life-raft canister on deck. FlexoFold 18x13 folding prop. This improves speed and steering dramatically. Wichard JibEasy boom-brake. It works well for such a simple device. 2nd smaller symmetrical spinnaker. Spinnaker pole for use with my new 125% headsail for extended downwind legs. Emergency tiller and emergency rudder. ATN storm jib. This slips over my roller furling jib. New Zincs and touch up bottom paint. Mount a 1.25" track on the mast to mount the spinnaker pole. ACR AIS class B system integrated into a new Raymarine C120W (at Nav Station) and existing Raymarine 80 head (at Binnacle) with radar. Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Netbook for downloading NOAA weather GRIB files and controlling Iridium modem. Storm sea anchor chute and blocks/lines. Find insurance for Mexico that covered me single-handing. Replace all 4D batteries with 6v cart batteries. An increase to 720a/h from 400 a/h! Spare batteries for all on-board equipment. GPS / EPIRB / computers / radios etc. Wash-down pump for on deck use. Replace main water pump. Install 12v Caframo Bora fans in all cabins. Yamaha 15hp and 2hp outboards for dinghy. 10ft Avon dinghy. Get my PADI open water diving certification. Full set of diving gear / tanks. Charts for the Pacific ocean. Spare dock lines and extra fenders. Manson Supreme 45lb primary anchor. 4 Deckmounted 5gl fuel cans. Honda EU2000i generator. Replace all incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs. Install hatch covers for shade. Install a 2nd 110v inverter with pure sine wave output to run sensitive devices like smartphones/computers. Unless your a hardcore sailor and an adventurer, don't try this on any boat under 30ft. Very few people have the skills to make this journey, even with a big boat and a crew. If you can do it, it will be one of the highlights of your life. Going under the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco Bay at the end is awe inspiring. Good luck and fair winds.
This is answered in ,http://goldengatebridge.org/research/facts.php#PaintHowOften, by the Golden Gate Bridge Organization Many misconceptions exist about how often the Bridge is painted. Some say once every seven years, others say from end-to-end each year. Actually, the Bridge was painted when it was originally built. Until 1965, only touch up was required. In 1965, advancing corrosion sparked a program to remove the original lead-based paint (which was 68% red lead paste in a linseed oil carrier). The removal continued to 1995. In 1965, the original paint was replaced with an inorganic zinc silicate primer and acrylic emulsion topcoat. In the 1980s, this paint system was replaced by a water-borne inorganic zinc primer and an acrylic topcoat. The Bridge will continue to require routine touch up painting on an on-going basis.
Of course not. Beneath cosmetics we are all green - but the need to ‘blend in’ was imposed on us by a whole string of invaders: Fir Bolg invaders, Viking Invaders, English Invaders and Darth Invaders. This is why the Irish traditionally had sex in the dark or partially clothed if it’s not nighttime - few bother to apply the necessary white covering all over, the feet are seldom done so most Irish will keep their socks on during love-making to this day. It spares awkward questions from non-Irish bed partners. Under cover of being a zinc mine, the so called Tara Mines manufacture vast quantities of white greasepaint that is sneakily distributed through the many pubs and off licenses and bought by all under the guise of getting the drink in. Sometimes if an Irish fella bought a load of drink as well as his paint he might over-indulge in the cover purchase and forget to apply his morning coating - hence he will look green but the non-Irish will just assume it is a hangover. Friends may offer him a ‘cure’ - while those outside think this is more drink it is actually code for a paint touch-up. After the ‘cure’ the subject will look fantastic - all green covered until the next drink misadventure.
Any bridge the size of the Golden Gate requires ongoing maintenance including touch up of the paint. There is no paint that could be applied so as to eliminate this need. The original red lead paint was removed and replaced with relatively nontoxic zinc silicate paint from 1965 to 1995. That is probably the only time the bridge will be effectively repainted. There should be no need for anything more than the routine maintenance going forward.
Zinc is your best bet, we use galvanized steel in industrial settings all the time, and they last forever, with zero maintenance. But you have to have each piece hot galvanized before bringing it to site. Be sure to touch up any damages from transport and installation.

Your paint store can mix it with the following information:, ,CMYK colors are: C= Cyan: 0%, M =Magenta: 69%, Y =Yellow: 100%, K = Black: 6%, ,The closest existing color codes to our GGB International Orange are PMS 173 and Pantone 180. http://www.goldengatebridge.org/research/facts.php#cmyk HOW MANY IRONWORKERS AND PAINTERS MAINTAIN THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE?, , ,Currently, a revered and rugged group of 17 Ironworkers and 38 Painters battle wind, sea air and fog, often suspended high above the Gate, to repair corroding steel. Ironworkers replace corroding steel and rivets with high-strength steel bolts, make small fabrications for use on the Bridge, and assist Painters with their rigging. Ironworkers also remove plates and bars to provide access for Painters to the interiors of the columns and chords that make up the Bridge. Painters prepare all Bridge surfaces and repaint all corroded areas. http://www.goldengatebridge.org/research/facts.php#IronworkersPainters
Should be OK. I had them to space rear wheels from the hub to fit my truck with disc brakes. 7075 aluminum will corrode quicker than other alloys such as 6061 or 2024, so you may want to clean and paint them first. Prime them with a coat of zinc chromate, then use any good spray epoxy paint such as appliance touch-up paint.
