Its That Time Again

Mariner has not been out of the water for a scrub and antifouling paint for over two years. There were a few barnacles and other marine growth on the hull but considering the time since the last haul out she wasn't in too bad a condition. I gave the cabin and deck a good clean and now begin some under the waterline repairs and paint before returning her to her natural element.

Hi Katherine and compliments of the season to you :>) - No, about a weeks reasonably easy work. I had some very minor repairs to the the fibre glass sheathing of the kauri hull and then a repaint with antifouling paint - nice work on hot days in the shade of Mariners hull - time for thinking about new years resolutions and the early dates on which they would be broken LOL.
