Final Pre-Launch Touch-Up

The hull paint was chipped in some places. Down to a thin layer in others. 

We touched it up.

The bulk of the bottom paint is in good shape. We hope this little touch-up will reduce barnacle and algae damage for another year or so. 

CA scraped the residue from our old blue fenders. You can see that there’s a lot of dirty smudge action. 

Next year, we’ll wash, wax, and paint her for real.

Next weekend: oil change, sails, and bimini cover. And maybe some interior cleaning, too.

On a side note, we’ve got innumerable Virginia boat registration problems. We let the dinghy registration lapse, so now we’ve got a new number for it, which is confusing. We have a fake no-title registration for Red Ranger to make Florida happy. Coast Guard documentation is good enough for 49 other states. Not Florida. Sigh. So. We might try to re-register everything in Maryland. Or. Maybe wait until we get to Florida again and subject ourselves to their idiocy.
