Haulout Phase 1

We started our haulout in May and we visited the boat 4 times for about 12 days each trip. It was intense and very satisfying when we accomplished all and more than we set out to do. The key was to organize the work and plan for sunny and rainy days which are very frequent during the rainy season in Palau. The best days were overcast with no rain.

End Of Another Day

Right after it rained. You can see we have the mast painted and about 5000 shallow POX blisters filled with red epoxy. Getting closer!

Kids working during haulout

The kids get a bit bored during all the work. Unfortunately the work is very intensive and time compressed so we cant include them on many projects, plus theres tons of fiberglass dust. We do put mosquito spray on them though and put them in the shade with the ipad where they explore and fish and play so its all good. The sunsets are awesome at the end of a long day!
