CS34 Bottom Cleaning

With the boats hauled out, it was time to start working on the winter layup. 

I spent some time taking the water out of a friend's boat Sumac.  Peter is away in Scotland, so I used my buckethead shopvac to take about 25 gal of water from the bilge.  Sumac would be hauled out near the end of the day.

First went over to the 22, and spent a couple of hours emptying the interior, and power washing the bottom.

By 3pm, the east crane had moved to another location, so I was able to also powerwash the 34.

Further inspected the hull damage from the anchor:

You can see where the anchor chain was dragging on the hull below the waterline:

Just knocked the VC17 bottom paint off.

Here is there the anchor was rubbing:

Only on the port side.

Close up view:

Burned through bottom paint, epoxy barrier coat, and started on the fiberglass.

Could have been worse.

Nothing that a bit of sanding and some Interprotect 2000 epoxy barrier coat won't fix.

She cleaned up nicely:

I will be putting the winter frame and cover on maybe Tuesday.
