Went down on a sunny Saturday afternoon to take the cover off the boat, and do a recon for whatever repairs, cleaning and spring chores might need to be done before launching in May. Not sure if we're going to paint the bottom this year, although there are a few rust spots on the keel. Looks like we're going to need to do some cosmetic work to the brightwork this season, it is looking mighty sad. We'll be moving to a new slip this year, since Torreson did a complete overhaul of the marina. We'll be over on the east side of the parking lot. We took a drive over to take a peek at the new slip (the dock feels a bit shaky, and we'll have to relearn our docking maneuvers it looks like. Should be interesting.
