Bottom Prep for Paint, and A New Prop Shaft


I spent an afternoon on the hull this week, sanding in preparation for new bottom paint. I quickly smoothed the entire port side and worked over the rudder. I’ve got a bit of epoxy to apply over some exposed bits of the stainless gudgeon that I replaced a few years ago. Occasionally some of the epoxy fairing compound will chip off and expose some of the gudgeon. It’s an easy process to recoat and fair.
