I've got a good bit of work done in the last week, I re-bedded and installed pressure treated wood backup plates under the bow cleat and all the stanchions; I also installed a new centerboard winch, sanded and faired the sides and deck with West system high density filler. I then painted the sides with two coats of Petit easypoxy bikini blue paint; I rolled and tipped the paint and sanded between coats with 220 grit. It came out great and I've got some good photos which I'll post as soon as my IT department (wife) shows me how to post photos here.

I'm going to sea tomorrow evening so I'll have to continue the refit when I come back the first week of April...good luck to all!
