That's right........ We're not living out of a suitcase for the next year so it's building shelves, book cases and drawers in the boat to make it more liveable. Now that it's spring comes the big question.... "What the hell do I do with the bottom paint?" So, after changing my mind numerous times I've taken on the task of stripping the hull down to bare gelcoat and applying an epoxy barrier coat to protect the hull from osmosis in the warm tropical waters, the reapplying new antifouling for this coming summer.

After a couple days of pressurewashing to remove about 75% of the old paint I followed it up with a good sanding. Ever see a "real" Papa Smurf ? Man I was blue at the end of each day.

Hopefully the boat will be back in the water before the end of June.

Enjoy the pics.
