She needed her bottom attended to

Put the mighty Peridot on the hard at Grand Marina boat yard today for bottom paint. I went with the new environmentally friendly bottom paint 18 months ago. Bad choice as our diver refused to scrape her anymore until she was freshly painted. So screw the environment I am going with 2 coats of the nasty copper based old time environment destroying paint which purportedly will go 3 years before needing refreshing. Also having them mount and wire my new Ace Brutus 40 crab pot puller. Somewhat gut wrenching seeing the boat come out of the water on the sling.

  1. Thanks…

    Cool post.

    She looks really clean! My boat’s underside is worse… I use toilet bowl cleaner and a car buffer with an abrasive pad.
