Another quick (and sporadic post) after being away from the boat for the past 6 weeks. Holidays, flu and medical mission work in the Dominican Republic. And cold weather.
Anyway, I had the bottom paint blasted off in early January prior to removing the keel.
I spent the past day and a half frabricating bracing for the keel. Today we unbolt the keel, remove the rudder although I’m not sure about that one yet, and move the hull into the shed for painting.
Pictures of the bracing for now.
Made out of pressure treated 4X4’s, 2X4’s and lag bolts.
I’ll post pictures of the removal tonight. If all goes well...
