SKYE is going to stay in the yard a while (being a wooden boat, not any longer than necessary), due to some issues with the bottom paint. In spite of only being a bit less than a year since the previous application, the paint is chipped off and peeling up in a few places — either from poor surface preparation back then, or… who knows what. Needs fixing before hopping back in the pool, and anyway, it’s a good place to begin bringing the maintenance up to par.
