Frustration

I am still in Key West and Reboot is still on the hard.  As we were getting ready to install the new rudder it became obvious that the bottom paint which was put on last October was flaking off.  The end result is that we have stripped all the paint back off down to the base.  Now I am adding Interprotect 2000 as a barrier coat and then Micron 66 as the bottom paint.  Since it has been raining on and off we have had to stop working and make sure that the bottom is bone dry before proceeding.  So now I am two weeks overdue for my planned departure.

I did take advantage of the time to compound and wax Reboot, something that has not been done for quite a bit of time.  She is looking quite pretty again which is very nice.

I hope to be back in the water in a day or two and then will be heading up the Keys and the Florida coast.

Fair winds and following seas.
