Who said I didn't do any sanding??? I just minimized the amount of sanding I had to do.

And hell, what did you need the mask for if you didn't do any sanding?
Anyway, doing the bottom for The Admiral and I means we each take a week vacation, drive to PC, and live on the boat, while it's on jack stands, in a yard, working on the bottom, until it's done. Entirely un-worth-it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
