New Bottom job

Yes, what DON’T PANiC heard was true. A new bottom job was in her future. I took advantage the haul out and had the bottom repainted with Pettit Ultima SR-60 in green. The previous owners had used the same paint, the bottom paint in the previous pictures was almost three years old and still preventing hard growth so I decided to stick with the same paint. Some questioned my color choice since the canvas is blue, but I will slowly change over to a green color scheme as upgrades occur. Showing off her frontSlinged with new paintNice view of the rear

My new Boat

It has finally happened. The money, the boat, and the desire all came together this past February. And on March 27th, 2020 I became the next owner of a Kelly Peterson 46. The sale took a while for a few reasons, but mainly was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which complicated getting certain things done to complete the sale. In the end the wait was worth it. Now for the next adventure in my life, turning my new sailboat into my new home. In the sling and showing off my dirty bottomGetting a spray down after haul out As sailors are known to be a superstitious bunch, I sort of fall into that group. That is why you may notice the previous name of the boat masked. Sadly, due to the current conditions of the world these days, the renaming ceremony will be a private affair.
