Step one

Step one is always to get the hull sorted . Which this year involved some rubbing to cut back the rather jaded surface,  Dark blue gulls just don't like the sun. We finished off with a new incarnation of nano-polish that promises better UV protection. I wait to be amazed...

Below the waterline there's also a change. New rules in Sweden mean the existing anti-fouling is withdrawn and replaced with a copper based version instead. Didn't they ban copper? 

Of course the new paint was more expensive. Surprised?

The job list is quite long this year , but in principle now she can go back in the water as she is...
