SeaHorse II is on the Hard

Hauled out this morning for a bottom job and prop buffing. () Nielsen-Beaumont is a newly remodeled yard in San Diego, on Shelter Island. Beautiful facility operated by "old friends."

These photos are all "before: pics. "Afters" will be posted in the next day or two.

Doesn't look like you need either from those pics.

But I do think you need your topsides buffed as I think that I see a small blem near the stbd bow.

You gotta use that thing Walt. How often does your diver do the bottom, it looks great "before?" I've seen some SoCal haul outs where the bottom looks like a garden, what is your secret?

Looks great! Did you premix some Roundup in your bottom paint?

What's that fan on your bow? Something to keep the Capt cool during docking?

My diver is Brian (owner) of "Dockside Divers" & it only took me 5 divers to find him. He does such a good job that I'd recommend him to anyone. (Every 4 weeks) I called him right after the boat was on the hard to compliment him. I agree, it doesn't look like I need a bottom job but it's getting one anyway.

PS That's almost a full 3 years since the last paint.

The good stuff which I won't mention here. Ralph, you would love this yard. Stop in and say hello to Bill Campbell and tell him I sent you. (He'll probably throw you out.)http://dockside-divers.com/

Well...........I had hoped to show you the bright red bottom (blister free!) and a buffed out bronze prop but when I arrived at the yard this morning at 8:45, she was already in the water and waiting for me.

Immaculate boat. Think mine is getting a white boot stripe after seeing yours. Looks really good.

No, not really. The inside needs some TLC as I removed a lot of crap the PO had installed. Venetian blinds, sears refrigerator, little screw holes in the teak where wall hangings, etc. used to be. Cabin sole should be refinished and some varnishing redone inside the windshields.

I think the boat is nice...but not immaculate.

Is the hull gelcoat or paint?

I can tell you must be OCD like me...

Walt, that looks like a Smart Rail system applied to the bow just above the boot stripe? I put them on our Mainship Pilot, and reduced spray about 60-70%.

The hull is 8 year old Cook Epoxy Paint.

The only non fly bridge, blue/black hulled boat that I've seen that looks better than mine is Don Moon's "Moonstruck." (IMHO of coarse and he is not allowed in our marina.)
