It’s time to do the bottom. Does anyone have any experience with Metalic Marine powder coating. They appear to claim 5 to 10 years between haul outs, and suitable for DYI.

WebBoat Antenna System

Check out the WebBoat 4G Plus by Glomex. We have one and it works well in most areas of So Cal. It also picks up marina wifi. Just a thought.

The advice from Taras is good advice. You will need to tow it. Consider a small console rib on a stern tilt davit on the swim step. It’s easy to launch and retrieve, even when you’re in your slip.
