Lia Fal is booked in at Doug's Boatyard in Opua for a haulout on 1 June. All hands to the pumps. Roli is picking up a welder form Awhitu - cheers Chris - and Mouse reckons he can dig us up some scrap steel. General plan is to to water blast the hull from the waterline down, hit it with wirebrushes and open up any suspect spots, take it back to sound steel adn weld up the patches. Then prime, cover with two-pot and antifoul. When we cleaned the hull in April all looked good with the prop but I'd like to draw the shalf and the rudder and service the glands whiel we're out of the water.
