Thanks Eric, She's pretty much oil/grease free but for some reason the previous owner decided to paint the entire ER and bilge with flat black spray paint, easy way out I suppose. Tough to fault the PO on something that was a personal preference though, rest of the boat is mostly top notch. My mechanical systems are appropriately painted but working down there is akin to standing on a performing arts stage as the light never reflects.
After painting my plan is to under light everything down below with LED strips as part of rewiring the entire boat. Bunch of other projects too that should make for a full and interesting winter of maintenance and upgrades. Aggressive schedule but no more dark places for me.
