The Voyage of 'S/V Röde Orm' - Sweden
Come on board and take part in our adventures while exploring the world at the slow pace of a sailing boat. We left in June 2009, heading south to escape the northern winter... to start with. Currently in Algarve/Portugal taking it one day at a time.
After Work

It's important to relax a while after dinner. We 've been busy with this project now from early morning to 7- 7.30 PM

More work with putty on the hull
05/02/2009

but after a light sanding tomorrow, it will be ready for paint. Today we taped everything on deck that's not supposed to be painted...

Soon the paintwork can begin

The prop is damaged, as I think I-ve mentioned already, They ewird thinbg about it is that I never noticed when it happened

Finally done with the hard and dirty work
05/01/2009

Isabelle finished sanding the tosides today. She has been so persistent and made a lot better job tha my (lack of?) patience would have allowed me to.

Meanwhile, I sanded the hull below the waterline. To top it off, in the afternoon I sealed the sanded steel keel with the first coat of epoxy based barrier coat.

After that and as you can see on the pic, I:
1. look like I've been working in a coalmine, and
2. am so amused by this monotonous work...

Anyways, the day was ended with a sauna in the club house (basically the only way for me to get clean again - by sweating it out- and then dinner on board. Needless to say, we fell asleep quite early and slept iike two logs

sanding, followed by more sanding
04/30/2009

We want to give our beloved boat a face-lift. I guess we spent effectively 4-5 days sanding the deck, then filling the holes, dents and scratches with polyester putty and sand it again. Repeat this process a couple times and we do now think that the deck is ready for a wash with acetone and then a new paint.

That's about what we have done today too, but now it wqs the topsides that needed sanding to ber ready for new, bright red paint. The old one i s really oxidated. On the pic you can see hwhat it looks like, before and after sanding
