In the meantime, I wanted to share some photos of Maya's renovation. We were able to, among other things, finally repaint her non-stick areas and she looks great!
Like any good paint job, the most work is put into the preparation of the surfaces. We cleaned and scrubbed like there was no tomorrow. Throw in a little acetone for the removal of any lingering oil or grease (and brain cells.... that stuff is strong) and we were ready to tape it off. I think we must have used a mile of the blue painter's tape, but it was worth the effort. Gone was the faded old blue decking, replaced with a lighter tan that was more in tune with our teak and bimini colors.
After a couple of weeks of boat projects, we were finally happy with Maya's condition. Its been over two years since we bought her and we are now right where we want to be, the exception being the makeover of her fabrics, window treatments and furniture. But hey, that is the admirals department. My job is to keep the boat afloat.
So now, its off to the beach for some much needed R&R.
