    I hauled for service and decided to shoot the hull and do the stripes.
    Here I am just finishing up on the cove & will soon square away the bottom.

    Will post a photo as she goes to launch- she is my old Rhodes.

    This haul out- Awlgrip topsides paint w/boot and cove, new bottom, changed out raw pump to see if I can get better cooling, will try PropSpeed this year, empty junk out of boat, sand out more of interior for varnish in the ongoing interior fitout, fret and moan over small details as clients boats scream for attention..

    Those old CCA war horses are a dream to bash around in, especially to windward. I haven't had one in a while, but maybe it's time to revisit these old ladies and pick up a work in progress.

    Ya Par- she is very close winded and goes like a freight train to windward.
    A blast to sail when it pipes up and surprisingly fast in light air.
