Paint Job for Whirlwind

07 June 2009 | San Carlos Boat Yard
We decided it was time for Whirlwind to have a new paint job. She was looking kinda tired. We headed back to California to buy paint, but found out we could not buy the Awlgrip in the LA area, so we had it shipped down from fisheries in Seattle. It only took a few days on a truck. Then we headed back down with the paint. The job will take about 6 weeks , so we plan on staying down here until the job is completed. We will update the blog as the job continues.

About:
We left Washington in 2006 and sailed down the coast to Mexico. We took a leisurely 3 months heading South. We really enjoyed the trip down the coast especially after San Francisco, where the tempatures warmed up and we removed our rain gear. [...]
Extra: We have been keeping Whirlwind in San Carlos during the hurricane season and will be staying in our new house in Union WA. during the summer. Life is good!
