I've been buried by a boat for about a week and a half. I have ate, slept, breathed boat work. Fun isn't the word I'd use.
Axel on the lift in the Ventura Boat Yard. This is after her wheelhouse was cut off so it could be trucked.
Boat, right after she arrived. Note the abundance of crap stuck to her hull.
So clean, pretty and gray. Getting her to this state was an awful affair. I have done many dirty, gross jobs in my life but scraping/grinding/painting the underside of this boat was by far the worst work ever.
To this. It's all worth it, I guess. She is so pretty. I like to stand under her bow and just rest my head against the steel. It will be a lot more work.
