Maintenance/refit in Nelson

While we still had rain on the first day of the new year, there soon came a change to calm and sunny weather. On January 5th the Dickson Marine travellift took us out of the water and after a waterblast we drive into the shed for some major jobs of maintenance. The upper structure is thouroughly sanded, craftfully handled and spraypainted. The worn teakwood is removed from the transom on the back of the boat and provided of a fresh paintcoat and antislip mat. The mast and rigging are checked and repaired where needed. As a final job we got a new antifoul paint put on and before the end of January 'Alexandra' is back in the water, mast and rigging are put on and she can sail to her berth in the marina again, looking really good!
