The project for the cold and dark winter nights is to remove the old self-polishing bottom paint and prepare the hull for the 2-component epoxy barrier coat and a new hard anti-fouling.
We're using the Pro Scraper which has a vacuum attachment. It makes removing the paint almost completely dust free. Still it's a very time consuming and hard job, but we're almost done with the port side.
We skip the keel for now and will return to it when the weather gets warmer as it needs to be treated shortly after the paint is removed.
