Evanston: smooth; scream
Yesterday Bob took these photographs of GANNET. I thank him.
When I bought the then GROWLER, she had a mirror-like racing bottom covered unfortunately for me with VC17, a teflon fresh water only anti-fouling paint. If you have been here for years, you already know that removing it was the worst task ever on GANNET and perhaps on any boat I’ve owned. It appears from the photos that her bottom may again be almost as smooth as when I bought her.
I am back aboard three weeks from yesterday. Despite being distracted by the pending Hilton Head condo closing, I’m getting excited.
