What I've done so far is sanding
the bottom down completely to the gelcoat
. Next step there is to put epoxy
filler in the small holes in the gelcoat
then I will put >5 layers of epoxy
on and then a copper coat. And hopefully I wont have problems for years.
Then is the sides the gelcoat is real bad. A lot of polish :/ Been over it ones but probably needs another two turns.
Also planning on lifting the engine
out and do a proper service
Changing the standing rigging
since the rigging
is old and never been changed.
Changing running rigging and cabling in mast
Changing all the seacocks, never now the condition of those.
Resealing the keel
This would be the main things for the spring, then the list goes on with smaller things.
But not changing the teak deck
this year, have a couple of mm left in it. And the budget
is not allowing it
Have the boat in Port-Napoleon, South of France
. Hopefully finished for the summer
But always something else needs doing.
