Cleaning the bottom of your boat is a necessity, just as is scraping, sanding and applying a new coat of anti-fouling paint. For many years we did the work ourselves, but we now take Sandpiper to a boatyard and let the young guys make quick work of it.
When I am as happy as a kitten curled up, soaking in the sun’s warmth, my right brain takes off. Seeing a clean, smooth boat bottom can do that for me every time. Enjoy:
Note: The video was shot in 2013 after St Mary’s Boat Services painted the bottom. In 2018, we returned again for the bottom painting as well as having the hull painted by local expert Rhonda, a fine person with whom to do business. Hull stripe was then changed to a lighter shade of blue.
