Spring 2017 Is Here

Spring Ritual

That means getting the boat ready…..and that means painting the bottom.  Bottom paint keeps away all of the hitchhiking critters, flora and fauna, that love to attach to the bottom of the boat.  It’s a bit of a nasty job, but it has to be done.  At least there are now water-based bottom paints available, and we don’t deal with the smelly solvents any more.  In spite of all the rain this spring, the job is done.   As of today (June 11), the bottom is done, the water system is cleaned, the mast is up, the boat yard has finished all of the stuff that we ask them to handle, and the boat is scheduled to be launched on June 12.  We are SO looking forward to the sailing season!
