December 24, 2014

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the yard.
Not a single boat floated as they sat on the hard;

Bottoms were painted and hulls polished with care
All the boats yearned for a flat seas and fresh air;

Slowly then faster, projects ticked off the list,
Preparing to sell what they most surely will miss;

Yes, LightSpeed is for sale. 

We've spent the last many weeks in Napa Valley Marina attempting to work on projects as California's 'Storm of the decade' brought an average of 1/2" per day for a total of 10 inches since we've been hauled out!    Then once we were ready to launch the boat yard lift trailer went down delaying our launch further.

Despite it all LightSpeed is looking good with here paint touched up and polished.  

Paint repairs on the port bow went really really well.  Rolling and tipping the Awlgrip 'Materhorn white' paint took time and many coats, but the results are superb.

 Gori propellers and freshly painted bottom looking good.
 Water beading up on the freshly touched up paint on the sterns.  All those little 'dinghy bites' are long gone.
 Another look at the port bow paint repair.
 Outside of port bow after a polish, but not yet waxed when this photo was taken.
Gori propeller looking pretty shinny.

Wishing everyone a happy holiday break.
