Picture Brand New Paint Cracked In Sunlight
This album will document the cracks caused by the sunlight heating up my hull of my newly painted sailboat. The boat was painted with AWLCRAFT 2000 and looks awesome! I will add more pictures soon. The heat from the dark color caused 32 year old fairing to decompose and outgas causing cracks in the the fairing down to the glass. The hull will now have to be stripped down to the glass and have to start all over again. THIS SUCKS!!!!!

Picture Step 3- Put boat on trailer
I needed a trailer mostly for 2 reasons.
1- to get the boat to Kurt Oberle @ High & Dry Boatworks to get it painted.
2- because the no travel lift where i will put it in the water.
BTW ROSS Marine near Charleston pulled the boat from the water for me and loaded it on the trailer. Very Nice People there.

Picture Step 1 Aquire the "Perfect" Project Sailboat
Finally found a boat big enough for me to live on 8 months out of the year. With a budget of only 38k this was not an easy find. Ask me privately and i might tell you how much it cost.
