Since our last visit with Ariel, she has been moved to her designated location in the boat yard, had all of the bottom paint blasted off of her, down to the gel coat, and fiberglass fixes below the waterline have begun. Ariel has some blisters; fortunately, almost all of the blisters are very small and are easily fixed.
We also got to inspect our 20 year old, wood centerboards. They are in perfect shape!
After all of the blisters have been fixed, the bottom and the centerboards will be ready to receive 4 to 5 coats of Interprotect 2000E and then 3 coats of Pettit Ultima SR-60 ablative antifouling bottom paint.
This should provide excellent protection for our Gemini 3200, in salt water.
