After being farrow blasted and faired, the boat’s bottom only needed a light sanding to smooth out the patches of epoxy, along with any other rough areas. Wil managed to do almost all of the sanding yesterday, and today he is going over what was missed.
This morning, using borrowed wheels, we took the kids for a passport renewal appointment. And in order to make the most of the trip, we included as many errands as possible. The highest priority errands were the bank, and of course, West Marine. The bottom paint has been ordered.
Our Givens life raft has returned from servicing. We’ll do a quick polishing in that area of the stern before placing the raft back in its rack.
Progress is being made in every department. Knock wood! However, we are keeping our fingers crossed that everything continues in a positive direction. It’s a boat, so one never knows!
