Oceanna’s face lift continues today with buffing, waxing, and new decals. (Did you know down here they pronounce decals “dee-cals”. Crazy sepos.)
Greg worked on bringing the gel coat back to life. He has washed with questionable concoctions of chemicals, scrubbed endlessly, buffed with rubbing compound, and today waxed her up to a beautiful shine! He mentioned today that he might be getting tired of circling around Oceanna soon, I figure this has something to do with why he had to drill another hole in his belt this morning. Sheesh.
Of course something as straight forward as waxing the boat can always be taken to the next level with Gregory Evans. Our multiple ladders and rolling scaffold weren’t quite cutting it for him so he decided he would make stilts out of milk crates. Second step in and you can see the results below…. The ladder eventually made its way back to the obvious choice.
Other, less hilarious, things that happened today were the upper pin stripe and new Lagoon decals went on, coating the props and sail drives in red anti-fouling paint continued, and our favourite visitor Rusty stopped by.
(Yesterday I started restoring the windows on the bridge deck. They are a little crazed, but a headlight restoration kit is clearing them right up.)
