She's out again...

Ahh I love end of May..boat comes out for a fresh dose of paint...

The cruising goodies go in, (including the lazy bag).meaning..vacations are near...

Anyway, got these today, from a cell phone. Here she is..feet dry again, waiting forthe sandpaper...and more Jotun teflon stuff....



Chickles, Mrs. Chuck, and Mrs. Val...we're all ready to go....

By the way..here is an experiment I did.

The day before Joel arrived, (april 2nd or so), I had the bottom washed to receive the guests (Joel, Jayme and TDW)....

At that time, I made an experiment and covered the saildrive and prop with a good slab of vaseline...

The idea was to see how marine stuff would adhere...

well...good news....the areas where we applied the Vaseline were spot clean, the other areas (where we did not apply), had a few barnacles...

So it looks like Vaseline in the prop and saildrive seem to be somewhat effective in reducing growth...funny huh???

That's a pretty pink hull you've got there.

In all seriousness, good luck with the sanding and painting. You can tell she's one well-loved yacht.

You know, if you put a nice fixed three-bladed prop on her, she'd probably perform better under power.

Funny it is...but it works. I have been coating the paddle wheel for the speed transducer with Vaseline for several seasons now with great results. One time last season I pulled it to clean and reapply a liberal coat. Try it...you'll like it
