          Wow. Beautiful boat. Can almost see that bow parting the waves. Probably some nice wood work inside...all varnished and glossy.

                  Is it still out from the floor replacement or out again for a different reason?

                    Don't know.
                    But, it's an old(er) wood bote and worse than owning a horse.

                    Tell me about it. I may be able to relate.

                  Yeah, the next morning was "launch time" after being on the hard for ten days. Somebody left a business card taped to the transom....must have wanted to offer a free oil change?

                  The boat was out of the water as a result of getting hit in the portside bow area by a sailing bote. We were running a very large world-class sailing event (the Melges 24 World Championships) a few weeks ago and I was the start/signal boat. We were anchored in about 80' of water with winds a steady 28 knots from the NE (that means some decent sized waves). One of the competitors did not exactly get a great start and tacked off to the right around our bow, but missed the fact that there was an anchor rode somewhere out there attached to my bow. His keel snagged the anchor line, and he slowly drifted under the port bow with about 2 minutes of agony as his hull repeatedly was crunched into the topsides paint. That was on day one of a five day event.

                  The competitor was great about the situation, I had known and raced against him over the years. We came to a resolution on the repairs that did not involve surveyors, insurance folk, or anyone other than vendors who I have done a lot of work over the years. Basically I did the glasswork/epoxy repairs, did a halfway decent job of rough fairing into Hi Build and 545 primer then the paint guys took over, blocked, primed, sanded, blocked, primed, sanded, blocked, and ultimately tented and painted the port side half / bow of the boat which came out very nice. (Awlcraft can be blended sort of like gelcoat when sections are painted next to "old" sections). He agreed to pay for the fairing, tenting, and paintwork, I handled the glasswork and we split the haulout cost. It was dissapointing because I had been out of the water before this "accident" doing an annual bottom job, other paintwork, and some other underwater stuff. (the areas affected had just been painted!)

                  Now, what happened the day after launching requires another post and some pictures......It involves some higher level gear that most hope to never need to use.....

                    Sounds like something HOT.

                  The boat is still 47' Here are a few more shots of the work in progress: The damaged areas were ground out with a angle grinder down to raw wood, then backfilled with epoxy, some 10 oz cloth, and hi-density filler. Then the epoxy was leveled down to mostly the surrounding painted areas before the whole area was faired. There was some damage to the toe rail and stainless rub rail section which is removed here....

                  After the rough glasswork was done, several levels of primer were applied and sanded, above is what we call "hi build" which is applied after using micro balloons/epoxy, but before Awgrip 545 finish primer.
