Out of the water for a quick clean.

Start of Season Clean

The weekend of 27th April was booked for a cleaning weekend for To Infinity.

Booked for a lift out on the Friday the Clyde Marina yard boys collected her from her berth and took her to the hoist bay and lifted her out for us.  After a power was she was taken to the boatyard to dry out.

Saturday was our day for prepping, the weather was not that pleasent to us with cold winds keeping the dust off us but cutting through us.  Prepping includes removing all the old paint under the waterline, removing the old anodes, polishing the prop and cleaning the boot top, the colour line just above the waterline.

Sunday the weather as kinder and this allowed us to get the paiting done, the antifouliung paint has a specal chemical to stop growth under the water but has a very strong odour.  Once the 2 coats were on we re-painted the boot top and then replaced the anodes.  All done ready for relaunch on Monday.
