Encore is out of the water for some TLC

Posted By on July 16, 2017


It has been a little while since Encore has been on the hard and the bottom paint is worse than I thought or expected. Really disappointed to see a couple blisters reappear after the "shave, skim and epoxy barrier" a few years back. Looks like I’ll need to work on grinding out, drying and patching a few blister before applying bottom paint again. I’m starting to think taking her out and maybe doing a yearly touchup is a better way to go?

In any case it is time to address a few of the other items too … dripless coupling, zinc, thru hull seacocks that are stuck and the transducer if I can find it!
