A coat of antifouling can make. She look like a boat again!

Looking good.  Just think how you will feel when you launch her with her coachroof all done and your cockpit seats gleaming in the spring sunshine.  There I go again, Dreaming. Nothing better than admiring your own hard work, its so rewarding.

Absolutely, I left the covers of for a few days to let her breathe and after some pretty heavy rain I note that there is not a single leak in the coachroof (for now). So that's very encouraging. I did a shocking job of repainting the boot topping though, tut tut. After much mental gymnastics I decided to re fit my compass and depth sounder display in the main bulkhead instead of atop the coachroof. Its not a perfect solution by any means but the instruments are up and running again and launch day is looming. The alternative was to build new hardwood boxes to mount them in and I have other more pressing matters!  (service the engine/ check all the rigging etc etc)
