After enduring snow, sleet, freezing water and high winds the weather finally gave me a break. I was able to compound and wax Reboot. We also replaced the "pretty stripes" just below the deck level on the sides. They had cracked and flaked over the years. With new bottom paint and a new coat of wax she is looking pretty again.
Got the rudder back from repairs and we put it in Reboot this afternoon. Of course the weather decided not to cooperate again over the past couple of days - highs in the 90's. That makes working in the sun quite the dehydrating experience.
Fair winds and following seas :)
More on the Indonesian volcano. We are now 300 nautical miles west of it. We met many nice people in our visit to the area. We hope the are all safe.
