LB's deck is done with painting

22 July 2018
Yesterday they sprayed the non-skid areas on LB's deck. So what's left to finish.

1. Soften up the non-skid surface
2. Replace all the fittings removed before painting, a big job!
3. Sand and paint the topsides, the hull from the deck to the waterline
4. Add the cove stripes, port and starboard, and the boot top.
5. Place the decals.
6. Final inspection
7. Move her out of the paint shed.

Then we can do our remaining projects while living aboard on the hard. We'll work until around August 13th and THEN!! we head off on a land and sea based journey. South to Antigua, Guatemala, next to Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes, next the Galapagos Islands for a cruise, Machu Picchu and back to Rio Dulce and Lucky Bird around September 6th.

Vessel Name: Lucky Bird
Vessel Make/Model: 1990 Moody 425 cc
Hailing Port: Kenosha, WI
Crew: Robert & Alice Smith
Alice and I have spent considerable time together on the water; cruising and racing on the waters of New England, the Caribbean and Lake Michigan.

Sailing is our passion and together we've been fortunate to experience the thrills, the camaraderie and the enjoyment boating provides. [...]

We seek the freedom, excitement and challenges of voyaging.

This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
