off with the old...



That's our Captain pulling into the marina where a massive lift hauled the boat up and out onto dry land. Shawn is doing some sanding and refinishing to the bottom in his spare time (because he has so much of that...) After his first day's work in the boatyard, he came home looking like a smurf from the blue defouling paint.
When all the old paint and grime is gone, on will go fresh coats, a new stripe and even new lettering on the transom spelling out the boat's name. I'm so impressed with how much Shawn has learned about sailing and boat maintenance in the past year. It's a lot of information and a lot of work but worth it if you love it!

That work is going to pay off soon as The Summer Wind starts looking sharp, just in time for this summer's winds!
