Uncovered and ready for survey work!

It may be only March 12, but HOLODECK is all uncovered and the canvas is up. I spoke to the boat yard in Maine and they said it was the time to start getting this done. They wanted $8.50/ft to uncover (43') so I took on the task myself. Took about 1.5 hours. I have a truck so hauling the wrap away was no issue. Also, since I am "low man" on the list to get any work done (still have repair work to be done out of escrow from the survey) the yard manager said once she was uncovered, it may get her a spot closer to the top of the list, as nothing else is uncovered as of yet. I will be going back up next weekend to replace the zincs and paint the bottom. Lastly, no hull oxidation, so just a coat of PFTE wax. She already shines like heck in the sun. I also lucked out as the canvas I just found out is only a year old!

Agree with Lyndon..... Early May if our weather continues up here. I just have to paint the bottom and install my new battery charger and the we will be splashing.

Well, it is still winter by the calendar. Hope the snow misses you.
