Update: “Wind Dust” Gets Her Bottom Done!
This week was designated bottom paint week. So Monday morning at 9:00 am the Brunswick Landing Marina travel lift gently lifted “Wind Dust” out of her home in the water. On the way to the blocks, her bottom received a thorough pressure wash and she was resting comfortably on the hard by high noon.
We selected Interlux Micron 66 paint and the 1st coat was applied Tuesday morning after some minor scrapping and bottom prep.
Wednesday morning the running gear (MaxiProp and BowThruster) were cleaned, painted and new zincs installed. Wednesday afternoon the second coat of paint was applied. Thursday, Mother Nature handed us heavy rain all day so launching was delayed. Friday afternoon at high tide “Wind Dust” with her new bottom settled in as the BLM travel lift lowered back in the water. The yard staff assisted our departure from the lift bay and “Wind Dust” was back in her slip on dock 8 within 10 minutes of departing the yard.
As many people know, Brunswick Landing Marina and the Yard are under new management and it shows. We want to thank Jim and his staff for a professional job delivered as scheduled and on budget. Great experience and very convenient!
