A long and hard working haulout with a little something for everyone;
Something for the shipwrights (4 planks, damn!)
Something for Fisheries Supply (paint, cotton, seam compounds, epoxy)
Something for me: a fresh boat with a clean bill of health.
She's taking up and getting hard now, as we were out for 2 weeks in mostly warm weather there was a bit of water when she was splashed. I am not used to her taking on water lately but she did this time. The marginal 2 strap Travel lift was not a help, but she's a tough enough girl.
I'm happy with this paint job, I must say, but it just about whooped me. I've been going for 5 weeks straight on this and it feels good to be moving along. Apologies for using a couple of the photos previously; this is the "we're splashed" thread so I hope I am forgiven for that. There are a lot more photos but I have to save some for later use.
Time to go boating!
A lot of prep and sanding resulted in a spotted boat; desert camo
Paint going on (there is a pleasant image in the reflections for the keen eyed)
So much for trying to be neat! Thanks for the ladle tip Jay!
Out of there finally!
They always look bigger out of the water
