On Friday Sep 30, 2016 I retired. The dogs may be a little upset a first cause I'll be in their way. Otherwise, I've got more time to work on the boat to get her ready for and departure at the end of Oct. I'll need the time given what the soda blasters exposed on the hull. It has been raining for 4 days and that is slowing things down. I'm hoping the bottom will be done and ready to splash back in on Wednesday or Thursday.
