Well as luck would have it I again picked the wrong day to try to work on the Nana Too. Saturday was sunny and warm and I was doing the honey do list. Not to worry there is always Sunday. Well Sunday moring I awoke early to get to the boat and the first thing I did was trip over my daughter who was not where I put her the night before, then I stubbed my toe. Ok keep moving can't get any worse - wrong spilled large coffee in car and then I notice it is pouring out :(
No problem plenty of work to do in the cabin.
About an hour later weather clears and I am able to wax the hull. One coat of Starbrite cleaner wax followed up by a coat of Starbrite Teflon polish. Fearing that the rain was going to start I again, I decided not to wax the cabin sides so I gave the boat a good scrubbing. This year I waxed the boat with my B-day gift to me a Porter Cable Random Oribital Buffer. (How did I ever live without one) One more weekend and I will be ready to splash. So far only two minor items to deal with - nav lights not working and light fixture in Vee Berth on port side not working.

Here are some photos taken today with my helpers

Lookinnnngggg GOOOODDDDDD !!!!

Since uncovering my rig, I soon realized I have to take out the pen and paper and start a list of things "To Do".

I just found out that my starboard Lenco tab is sticking in the down position. (it goes down, but not up :( :( )
Because I'm on a trailer, I de-winterize, splash and fish for a while before doing the wax thingy. I wait for it to warm up a bit, and then enlist the two teenage boys that are eating me out of house and home. :roll: :roll: :roll:
