Boatyard Bliss


Upon arrival at Westland Marina there were a series of decisions to be made. The outcome of is that Orion is in the yard for a bottom peel and other repairs. This was decided after I was introduced to Tom Musto of Boat Savers. He is working on the peeling, re-glassing and painting of the bottom.

I have been a busy weekend warrior, too. A large number of projects are on my list. So far, I have repaired the combings and leaks in the cockpit area,

repaired the companionway hatch, stanchion repair (with some help of my neighbor) and replaced a mast support timber. The list is still pretty long though. Some of what I have done was not on the list when I started. 

The heat at the boatyard in July is oppressive, resulting in slow progress.
