All are now old models. But when I decided to build Giulietta, that was what I was going for intially.

I like your boat better than the Sinergia.

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.

pegasus1457 is on a distinguished road
Cool

Alex,

That is the cleanest bottom I have ever seen. Is that anti-fouling we see?
E-paint? It looks like gel coat but I am sure it couldn't be, unless you are dry sailing her.

Pegasus-

He uses a Jotun-brand teflon-based anti-fouling paint. Not, gelcoat...is paint.

Yes antifouling....the good one...

And if I was to tell you that the bottom was only washed with normal tap water after she has been in the water since June 5th (me and Tommyt put her in the water that day).

Would you believe???

And if I was to show you a photo of her buttocks sailing in October....after been around a while...











This is "the secret":

This is the paint I use.








Its painted by airgun. This was the day TommyT arrived....

I agree with SD, I like your boat much better.

Alex, based on the results I get with the Trinidad SR, the anti-foul paint you use is very impressive; is it available in the US?

Giu, Beautiful job your men have done on the bottom.

But, when I look at that greenish band that was covered by the cradle's support, am I seeing what your bottom looked like - just prior to hauling? If so, the anti-fouling paint wasn't THAT spectacular.

A little research on my posts specially those from when she was hauled out in May, will show you that we used a dye to mark the water line, when we picked her with the travel lift, because I changed the water lines remember?? They were blue and green and now red and blue!!

Silly man. That's what's left.

That is not green, its black.
