(Sanding+Epoxy+Paint) x 2= OUCH!


Spent some time painting the chain locker this weekend,
 and helped load the tanks into the bilge. I'm using the word helped very loosely here as Travis and Mike did most of the work. (Mike has restored my faith in the kindness of strangers, as he just showed up when we first got to the boatyard, and, being concerned for our safety, decided to help us get the tanks onto the deck,
 but Travis will tell you more about that)
As if getting the tanks secured wasn't progress enough, we did the unthinkable and finally reorganized the interior! 
Despite our best intentions, we were slowly falling into complete choas. The task of cleaning up seemed trully daunting, but after a few hours the difference was unreal. It was quite timely too, as this reorganization marks a new phase of the project...engine room rot removal and replacement.
