Projects are slowing down.
After 12 years of making sure Shibumi was fit as a fiddle there are not that many more projects. Finally added the AIS to the system and the new paint. It might be time to sell and buy the next boat, possibly the last boat. Interested?
The funniest comment during haul out this year was how shiny our propshafts were. I replaced them three years ago and there are no marks of any kind on them. Maybe the quality is better. I have to give Marine Hardware in Redmond, WA a shout out for building these shafts. They are perfect and have no vibration.
Pettit has been my paint and varnish of choice for the last few years and bottom paint, topside epoxy paint and varnish are holding up better than expected. Thanks to Rachael and Pettit!
