CS34 Bottom Paint

Easter long weekend, and the weather was beautiful: sunny and 10 degrees with just a little bit of wind, PERFECT for doing the bottom on big Still Time.

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.

We realized that when I pressure washed the hull in the fall, I had missed a large section on the port side; I seem to remember I was doing it at dusk.  Had to get a buck of warm water from the clubhouse to clean these areas (the outdoor water is not on yet). Once the areas dried, the two of us got her done

Took a couple of hours.

The aluminum thing hanging at an angle from the cradle is the boom.
