We finally managed to get three coats of paint on her and she is very shiny!
The white you see now is the reflection of boats nearby.
We plan to add a 4th coat but decided to wait until next visit and concentrate on items necessary for putting her to bed.
Yes, she is back in storage. We arrived January 12th and left her on March 18th, a little over 9 weeks, and worked on her almost every one of those days. She is getting whipped back into great shape. She has been mechanically and structurally sound, but having her look good is a real treat. We kid ourselves into believing that if someone was passing through the boat yard looking at sailboats, ours would be at the top of the list of the boats they wish they had.
We have a few more projects on our list for next time and then launch and play. Tentative plans are to head back to the Bahamas to places we have not yet seen and perhaps other islands, also. We are in hopes a granddaughter may join us for a while.
We made it back home in 4 days thanks to the 4th day being a little over 900 miles of driving. Now we will prepare our other sailboat, Cal 27 T/2 “Knot Ready” for the summer sailing season and make sure the guest rooms are ready for whoever may come visit! Yawl come! (sailing humor)
