I arranged for my boat to have about ten years worth of old antifoul scraped off, and the hull epoxy coat renewed, and primer applied.  The report from the man who supervised the work is that the hull is in very good condition with low moisture readings, and no blisters.   That's the good news.

Now for the bad news, its 8AM here in Marmaris, and I am just about to start the the long slog of putting on two coats of antifouling.

You paid for some other poor bugger to do the horrible jobs!

You now have a fun gloopy job that is almost impossible to screw-up! Stop moaning and get on with it /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Then you are two days behind me - if it's any consolation, it's very satisfying when it's finished.

I'm off to polish the port shipsides today, then waxing both tomorrow.

Have a nice day!!

Don't forget the primer - otherwise you won't build up another find crust of dead paint for some other mut to remove in 10 years' time....

Primer was already on, first coat of navy blue Hempel Olympic 86900 went on this morning, second coat (black) will go on tomorrow, then on Saturday all the props will be moved so that the patches can be scraped, epoxied, primed and given two coats before launch on the 23rd.
