Bock Marine Refit #1
We had very strong winds last night. My wind graph shows peak gusts of 38 knots. "Cause the walls start shaking. The earth was quaking, My mind was aching... and you (the wind) shook me all night long." [Thank you AC/DC] It is one thing to be on a boat in the water, totally different when you are on the hard and wondering if the boat is going to tip over.
We got a lot done today. After a long night of rain the sides of Reboot got washed for the first time in a year. Then late this afternoon the first coat of Interlux Micron 66 went on the bottom. I chose "66" because they don't sell it in California. This alone was an indicator that it actually might work. But as I said yesterday it is horrendously expensive. I decided to bring the waterline up over the bootstripe. Most of the time half of the 4" bootstripe is in the water and gets covered with crud. I will decide later if I want to put a new boot stripe on Reboot but at the moment that 4" of blue paint is gone.
