The painters have started work on the boat and everything is a total mess! We’re painting the interior, they’re painting the exterior along with fighting our two motors – when is two better than one? Right now it’s not! It hasn’t stopped raining for almost a week which is perfect timing to have little holes all over the boat. We took out the stanchions, mast boots etc for the painters so now the boat is like a moist cave with water trickling down the sides. Wonderful. And the bilge pump has decided to crap itself.
