Haul Out Days 4 and 5

Hi everyone,
This weekend we finished all remaining work needing to be done prior to relaunching...
  • "Keyed" the CopperShield antifoul on the hull with help from Alan and Pauline
  • Cleaned the topsides of streaks and deposits
  • Touched-up topsides scratches (mostly from the Geraldton fish farm incident)
  • Polished bow and transom stainless steel fittings
  • Tightened the propellor shaft Kleenhull copper anode (in very good condition after 1 year)
  • Fitted new Sentinel Systems gas detection system (except cable to the not yet fitted solenoid)
We keyed the Coppershield by wet sanding with 180 grit paper.  It was very quick and easy to do, the main thing being not to take off too much.  It took the four of us less than two hours.

The touch-up paint certainly improved the look of the damaged topsides and only took a few minutes to apply.  Best of all it didn't cost a cent.

Zen Again is booked to be relaunched tomorrow morning at 0830.
