Fresh Coat of Paint

Fresh Coat of Paint

The bottom paint on my boat was long over due. I had a window of opportunity to complete this project. I pulled the boat, power washed it and scraped the barnacles off. Next came hanging the boat and sanding the bottom. I always like when the sanding is done. Two coats of paint were applied  on the bottom and three on the sides( 1 gallon total).  My favorite part is pulling the tape off . Ahh… The most enjoyable part is seeing the boat anchored at Cayo Costa.

In 2016 I began solely offering private small boat charters to the islands of Pine Island Sound including Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and North Captiva. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist, licensed USCG Captain, avocational photographer, seashell enthusiast and passionate about the history, people and culture of Southwest Florida, especially Cayo Costa. I volunteer as a member of Friends of Cayo Costa State Park and have great respect for the heritage of Cayo Costa.

    That's one of those projects that you hate to start, but you're glad you did once it's done. Looks great!
