Here is another update. While the boat was off of the trailer, we decided to do the needed bottom work. There were numerous small cracks where the strakes join the flat part of the hull. These were ground out and repaired. There were also quite a few chips and dings that needed to be repaired. No big deal, but it takes a little time. Here are a few shots taken during all of the grinding.

One of the chips. This one was more like a chunk.

With the repair work completed at the end of last week, it is time to wet sand and polish the new gel coat today. Here is the sanding.

These guys are supposed to have the boat ready to go on the new trailer this afternoon. Tres is planning to go over the boat one last time tomorrow to double check everything. As of today, he is planning to start water testing on Wednesday. I'll keep you all posted. Here is one last picture from this morning.

HD, I think I have some nice close ups of the hole in the bottom suffered in the 92 or 93 key west races somewhere around. If you like I could scan them and send them to ya. She was a sweet looking boat then and still is now, even all white is a beauty.
