Bottoms Done

Well, Here she is after 2 1/2 weeks of crawling around on the ground, slogging about in three inches of water while we blasted the old paint off....... followed by a heavy grinding to remove what was left, and finish everything off with a finer sanding to remove everything down to the bare gelcoat. Now she's all set with 3 coats of epoxy barrier coat followed with 3 coats of antifouling. Jan was a great help in all the repainting. Everybody is asking if she's a new boat. WIND WARRIOR looks fantastic ... and we're both proud of her !

Today I removed the winter cover from the cockpit. All that's left now is to replace the rudder, hook up the propellor shaft and get set for launching later this week.

  1. Thanks for your comment on our blog. We expect to be back in Nova Scotia before you depart, possibly as early as next week, hopefully before June 25.

    I'm sure you'll find that there are good days and bad days, but overall it's a good experience.

    Fair wind in your sails...
