Based on past experience, if you get a window early in the spring, paint your bottom, but it could turn cold (like it has in the first week of April), but worst, the knat flies come out as it get warmer and make painting the bottom VERY unpleasant.
We undid the strings for the cover that go around the hull.
The cover then hung vertically, allowing us to mask the waterline and start painting.

Took a couple of hours.
The aluminum thing hanging at an angle from the cradle is the boom.
