many more updates this season!
Boat is in very good condition and is in the water ready to sail. The boat is bone dry and never accumulates water in the bilge, literally never had to pump out this entire season.
She was dry stored for the winter with the mast unstepped. I sanded the bottom, applied 1 coat of pettit underwater primer and 2 coats of West Marine PCA Anti-slime ablative. (3 coats to rudder and leading edges). Removed and stripped the rudder to gelcoat. Drilled about 10 holes through and let dry out. Filled holes and leading edges with WEST epoxy, primed and painted. Replaced the lower gudgeon with newer catalina direct version w/bushing. NO slop in the rudder. Polished and sealed the hull. Applied new metal bird spikes to both the upper and lower spreaders.
Known issues: Mainsail has a patched tear and probably due for replacement soon.. It sails fine however.. Cabin cushions are original and some have small tears. Knotmeter is not working.
