Out of the Yard
Just needs to have the blue tape at the waterline removed and she’s ready to splash. That’s US$475 blue paint and primer, aka 4 top coats and 16 liters.
This is Brian putting on Propspeed to the running gear (the metal prop, shaft and strut). Propspeed is a yellow chromate metal primer topped with a clear silicon paint. Basically nothing sticks to the slick silicon keeping the busy barnacles at bay.
It’s nice to be in the water not risking my life each time I use the ladder to get in and out of the boat and to get out of the dusty yard.
Now its time to work on getting the mast back in the boat. Hopefully next week.
