bottom paint
Lunacy was hauled at Maine Yacht Center last week, just for a quick scrub and zinc replacement, as I plan on taking her south to Puerto Rico for the winter. This is the second full season she's had her Ultrasonic Antifouling system clicking away trying to keep her private parts clean. As you can see...
Lunacy was hauled for the winter on Friday, which means at last I have answers and evidence to share with the several people who've been asking me about the Ultrasonic Antifouling system I installed toward the end of the season last year. When Lunacy was hauled last year, after two months with the Ultrasonic unit...
After gloating last week over how I needn't put any bottom paint on Lunacy this spring, it was only fitting that I should spend a good part of this past weekend messing around with bottom paint. Not painting Lunacy, but Mimi, our little Drascombe Dabber that we use for exploring the local backwaters here in...

Only a boatowner could view an image like this as being orgasmic. You'll recall I'm testing some gear sent over from Ultrasonic Antifouling Ltd. in the UK--in-hull transducers that go clickety-click 24-7 and supposedly prevent nasty critters from growing on Lunacy's hull. Well… Lunacy got hauled a couple of weeks ago after two months in...
Having blasted the bejesus out of the nether regions of poor Lunacy’s hull (see our last episode), I next needed to decide what anti-fouling paint to dress her up in to make her respectable again. In the Good Old Days we never worried about such things. When I was a boy, so much poison was...
Soon after I purchased Lunacy and brought her north late in the summer of 2006 it became painfully obvious I would have to do something about her anti-fouling paint. On surveying the boat in Florida her bottom seemed reasonably fair with good paint adhesion. But soon after I hauled her out in Maine that fall...
