Finaly home. (Kudos to Delta...nice airline, will get my future business)
Spent a few hours at the marina yesterday, and took some photos of Giulietta, the "BEFORE"...for you guys. The hull was all nicely washed and sanded. She will be drying for a few days, then will be painetd bellow water line and polished above water line.
Later, I will post the photos of the "AFTER" "face lift". For the record, here are a few photos of how she was..
Here a few items to be done:
1) Change to torpedo weight, height and shape
2) New thiner longer rudder, but narrower
3) New water line colours Blue and Red instead of Blue and green
4) Repainting with Jotun Teflon Racing paint
5) Mods to new boom hardware
6) mast jack serviced
7) Complete rig inspection and tune
8) New Valves to allow water heater conmplete drainage
9) New zincs
10) thiner keep leading edge
11) other small things
By the way..by the time I got to the marina, the prop had been cleaned and serviced....
anyway...I'll do something else...I love the crew.
(Please note the red tape is only to mark the water line for painting. It will later be removed, these photos also show the boat cradle, or whatever you call it. Safe and sturdy, because she's flat and its not safe to use the regular stands one uses on other boats)
Very extremely handsome good sailor near the rudder..this rudder is a gonner, new one will come this week. I'll limit those photos.
My old torpedo, new changes will make her sail better.
Nice view that shows the hull lines at the bow, that's elegant, at least in my book, and from this angle shows the nice sharp bow entry point....
AND FINALLY...can you do that with your rudder??? 85º ???
