Evansville is closer to Kentucky than it is to Indiana.

Its really fun when you take the time to paint a boot stripe...sand a near perfect line, tape ever so carefully, tip off best you can...

just so the travel lift sling can rub all your hard work off

Cheers,

Sorry, i thought it was "stripping the bottom off the ho" my apologies. thank you for understanding.
proceed with thread.
Actually, ive been doing this project as well or i've been watching Nimfy strip and paint the hull as i sit back and drink beer but all i here is bitching and complaining as i ask her to set the paint roller down, go below and get me another beer. jeez! what is it with woman? it was just a simple task. but the boat is looking nice.

Chef -- After 4 dark and stormies you won't notice it one bit. And if you mention it to the yard they will bill you for removing paint, right?

I remeber when it was fun, dad had me sanding down the bottom, I was 16 didn't know any better, must have breathed to much of that stuff, never been the same. It was either that or all the alcohol.

The best kind of bottom painting enjoyment is watching someone else doing the job. I had a grin from ear-to-ear watching the boatyard grunts painting True Blue this past Sunday, using the new owner's money.
