Yesterday was a 12 hour work day for Pulsar and Pablo. We put down 1 coat of West Sytem epoxy and 4 coats of West System 422 barrier coat. The results are great! The botttom is beautiful 🤩.We are so grateful for the help of our friends who lightened the work load (💝Saltymatey), more friends who baked cinnamon rolls (looking at you Sailing Totem), and teenagers who wrangled munchkins all day. 💪💗⛵️ Next up: more repairs, washing, sanding, and more barrier coat for the hull. ...

We were astonished as it lay in the gravel stunned. So stunned that I was able to pick it up with a 2 inch stick and it sat there. And of course, no picture before it was able to fly away to its mate. Pretty sure it was an Anna’s Hummingbird. ... See MoreSee Less

We are so close to being ready to barrier coat the entire bottom. ... See MoreSee Less
