The boat has been moved to the paint shop, where a primer and anti-fouling will be applied to the hull below the waterline. The hull above the waterline is not painted, and remains bare aluminium on which a protective layer of corrosion forms over time. The deck, cabin roof and hard dodger are painted white, in up to nine layers of paint (for robustness), so the painting process will take a while. We have to be patient.
