Another weekend, another mission ticked
Here we are with a fully covered bottom! After Thomas and I finished the last of the 14 coats of epoxy/fairing/primer/antifouling on Sunday, you might think we kissed languorously, hugged each other, and jumped in the air, arms up high in large victory signs. I wish. Instead, I somehow had mixed feelings, and the relief and pride were offset by disappointment (realising what a sh@%$! job we had done with the fairing), burn-out, and the daunting list of jobs that still needed to be done to “restore [Obelix] back to her former glory”, to quote the ad from the broker.
And indeed, during our digestive walk after lunch that day, we could only admire, and be jealous of, the mirror-polished hulls of the Riverside marina fancy yachts. Looks like a lifetime away for us!
Next: help us answer a crucial question
Given our initially selected Sunbrella Azure is not available in our region, what colour should we choose for our new spray dodger ?
