Painting her bottom

Will you just look at that? A perfectly painted bottom. Well sanded too. That should give us another knot. Well, maybe not a whole knot because it wasn't that bad before. But then it does make you feel good. It's a nasty job well done. And it's certainly put a smile on Mary-Ann's face. Even though it's a few days in the yard (which is not my favorite place) it's nice to know you've done it. It's another year with a few dives to clean the bottom again after a few months in the brine. The there's more dives, and more. And then it's also cleaning the prop. Then it all gets a bit much and you have to haul her again.

But I have to tell you, it's worth every bit.
