Winter Maintenance

While our channel from the marina to the ICW was being dredged, I took the opportunity to pull the boat, change the name, and work on a laundry list of overdue items.  Some of them are: Replace engine mounts, replace cutlass bearing, change all fluids, replace mixing elbow, acid clean heat exchanger, repack stuffing box with GoreTex packing, check and maintain bonding system, maintain winches, new bottom paint etc etc.

Waterline was raised by simply eliminating 1/2 of the bootstripe. Bottom paint will be raised to meet the new ivory border below the bootstripe.
