Hauled out SPARTINA earlier this week for mid-summer maintenance. Will probably have her in the garage for a couple weeks. Some of this will be routine maintenance - touch-up painting, varnishing and cleaning - and some will be a 15-year refit. New stays, blocks, turnbuckles are on the schedule. The boat has seen a lot of sailing over the last decade and a half, don’t need any more breakage like I had last winter with the mizzenmast.
I find this kind of work intimidating but eventually realize it is one step at a time. First step was power washing the bottom. Epoxy work, sanding, painting next. Then hardware, stays, etc, and I’ll finish with a new coat of anti-fouling paint.
