Hopefully everyone had a nice May Day!
On Monday we started, among other things, waxing the topsides of s/y Dolphin Dance and 3/4 of the work is done now. As mentioned earlier, the keel repair is the deciding factor for our launch schedule, but we try to make the boat as ready as we can regarding other respects. If we have spare time before the launch, we will do a second round of waxing, but the topsides look pretty good just after the first round. The topsides were first washed with plenty of water and boat shampoo, then treated with Hempel’s Cleaning Powder and finally waxed. Addition to that, the bootstripe and area right above the waterline was treated with Hempel’s Clean & Polish to get rid of the the algae and waterline stain.
