The only job I had previously arranged to get done while the boat was on the hard and I was away working, did get it done and it looks really sharp. Allen a local Trini painter, painted the hull, raised the water line by 6 inches an did a very good job. I ended up using awlgrip 2000, a little more expensive but the final result is impressive. It's nice to have different people coming by and asking what type of boat this is, the year. Rodeo is loving the attention.
I'm now slowly working away on a few other projects and I'll try and post here what I end up doing while being here in Trinidad.
