I motored Bisous to the Rocky Pointe boatyard lift dock at 7:30 this morning.
I returned at 1:00 to go over what was needed. I was thrilled to learn that I’d be allowed to work on the boat myself while she’s in the yard. The boot stripe was filthy with river sludge. I’d been unsuccessful with cleaning it using cleaning solutions, so I decided to buff it.
I needed to replace the zinc anode. I needed to fill the hole in the rudder where a previous filler had fallen out.
I brought over some buffing supplies and got all but a small section of the port forward boot stripe buffed clean and waxed before finishing for the day. It required a lot of arm strength and grew too hot to finish.
