Yesterday, Ben popped all the blisters on the keel so they
had time to dry out before sanding, priming and repainting.
This morning, we taped off a new waterline, about 3 inches higher on the sides and all the way up to the transom in back. Since we live aboard, Mother Culture carries a little more weight than she used to, and the old line was a little too low for us.
Next, we hung plastic all the way around in order to protect our neighbors' boats while sanding. Bottom paint contains copper which can cause stains.
