For the winter I am bringing the boat home for some project work. Won't be the last she sees of the briney, though. I am scrambling to arrange at least one CBBT trip!
Got home, and pressure washed off all the slime. Now I have these little hard critters (I guess they are barnicles) on the motor, tilt/trim pistons, paddle wheels, ducers, and scupper covers. Basically everywhere without anti-fouling paint. Not tons of them but enough that the scupper flaps were stuck closed. :shock: I can get them off pretty easily but they leave a little round spot that doesn't scrape off very easily and I am afraid to scratch the paint.

I'll also get to learn gel coat repair, as I have hurricane damage to the gunnel/rub area.
