Seriously, though, things are going excellently! As you know the boat is an ex-charter boat but unlike 'normal' charter
boats this one was actually owned by Sunsail. So as they are the vendor they have been excellent to deal with.
The agreement included having the surveyors list fixed by Sunsail.
So the boat is in the yard having the bottom scrubbed
The photo below shows it after it was pressure hosed while in the slings so the missed band shows what it was like its botties was like! The black blotches must have been either the first coats of antifouling (or close to) the later zillion coats are just pealing off from it. So the whole lot has been taken back to the gel coat. I'm not sure how good it is to sand it back that far.
We go have a look each day but we are not working on it ourselves. Too many cooks etc.
Its another week before we get it... maybe longer. So we are cooling
our heels till then, saving cash, making lists, scouting any sale
on the whole island.
Oh, we named it too: Sea Life
Just can't wait till we get it.
