Me Voy Haul Out- Day 1

Today we flew. Now we crash. But before I stumble into bed here are a few pics  and notes of the day.

Her bottom looked pretty good and we finished sanding it. The camera battery was too low and I wasn't able to take any pics of the work. Just as well I think, because for some reason, we jumped into it with such gusto, and ended up covered with that awful green bottom dust. Some guy pulled over in his car to tell me that it is poison I was wearing. That made me look at myself in the car mirror, and realize just how bad the situation was. And so stupid too coz we had Tyvex suits and full face respirators in the truck. Just dumbness not to wear them. As I was scrubbing myself in the shower, I vowed that I will never make that mistake again. Ever. Yes, it was that bad.

that was a looong stick

Arranging the slings

They lifted us with the boat. Very strange sensation.

Tomorrow we paint the water line stripe and give the saildrive some TLC.

Would you call that a Random Act of Kindness on his part to tell you that you are doing something he considers stupid?

Thanks G.
Yes Jomamma I guesss I would. The strange thing was he said it with a big smile that didn't match what he was saying. It took me a while to get it, but I def. did after I checked myself out, ouch it was bad.
