Our Boat is Done and Back in the Water

What started out as a bottom job turned into a major redo was to be done in 2 weeks it's now been 9 weeks and we are done replace all the thru hulls and brought the bottom down to bare and interprotect then 5 coats of bottom paint new zincs re did rudder removed all the outer protection and down to bare wood then re did it treated and re-glassed it added 2 solor panels 135 kerocera new MTTP 500 and new 3000 pure sin wave inverter added 2 more batteries for a total of 6 T105 new radar dome painted hull and boot stripe. And it seems now that I look it over heck feels like we rebuilt it. So now a few days here in Goodland, Fl to shake her down to find any bugs then of to the Key for a few weeks and then up the east coast for the summer. heres a few pics hope this works.

Re: Our boat is done and back in the water

You've done a great job. She looks terrific.
What is she?... as in make and size?

Did your budget blow out by much?

Great typo. Almost makes me wish someone would invent a pure sin wave inverter.

Sounds like it could be a lot of fun at a dock party.
