I would too if my fiancee even knew how much of my time was spent looking at sailing stuff.
It's only a matter of time.

Re: OMG, She's Topless!

This looks like a fun project to track. Keep the pics and info coming. Any chance of a blog with regular (daily?) updates??? Love those sites especially when it is too cold here to sail like today!

It's funny but I actually felt quite uncomfortable about her bare topsides being on display for all and sundry to perve at and am much happier now she's been moved amongst some of the other boats in the middle of the yard.. with her 'underclothes' (a coat of primer) on at least.

It would be - and that's what we did above the rubbing strake a couple of years ago - but the area above the rub strake is protected from the sun by a full-length boat-cover. The summer sun is mighty hot down here and clear-coat is far too much work, so she'll be back to her usual white again as soon as the rain let's up.

As far as it being a lot of work, it took two of us a day to do both sides plus one coat of primer (rolled on) so it's not as bad as you'd think. The old paint was practically falling off by itself..

Our sailing season starts up again next weekend, so we've got one week to undercoat, topcoat and get her back in the water, but the main aim is to get her looking not-shabby for the Geelong Wooden Boat Festival coming up in March.

She's getting dressed..



..but, just like some women I know, it'll be a few more days before she's looking presentable.

Re: OMG, She's Topless!

She might be sweating a bit under the covers, but at least now she's fully clothed:




Missed the first race of the season.. but splashing tomorrow.

Indeed. Shameless self promotion in fact.

This Classic fellow is a right troublemaker lets put him to the sword.

(Sorry Cam ..... )

Pretty paint job though. You've done the old biddy proud.

Yet it still took a week to notice?!? Cor blimey..

Anyhoo.. Thanks TD, it really did come up nice - looks even better in real life. Never thought we'd ever get a mirror finish on the old girl... but with the +40degC days we've had, to keep her looking like that I've had to make sure she's wet down morning, noon and night until she can get back in the water.

When are you coming down for a sail? Bent's been out on her already..

Been many a year since I was last in Melbourne. Lets see what we can arrange.
