I borrowed sanders, vacuum, sawhorses, extension cords, and ladders from our winter dockmates Chris and David. Diana laid out brushes, rollers, masking tape, and thinners. We threw ourselves into the task.
Grind, dust, prep, and paint. Repeat. Change zincs, clean strainers, repitch prop, dissemble the wind vane, change out the exhaust system, fair the topside gauges, caulk the deadlights, mark the anchor chain, ad infinitum.
