I’ve noticed my readership has gone down so I can only assume the winterizing season is just plain boring. For you stragglers I have to show the mandatory haul out photo of the day – this one is also a deviation from our normal clientele. Our soda blaster showed up first thing this morning to start on a GB46. We also have an Albin 28 in the wings awaiting the same treatment. You will see this job crop up again after the bottom has dried for a while when we start protecting the bottom with barrier coat. We do have some real service work going on – Carlos and Izzy continue with the polishing job they started yesterday. Is my imagination or is Willy getting more cantankerous in his old age?
