Anti-siphon discharge loop

The previous discharge hose was unfortunately not long enough to prevent flow back from the holding tank, when the boat was healing. The problem had to be fixed before the season for obvious reasons :) So I installed a longer discharge hose with a vented valve.

New bottom paint, boat launch and a new anchor

The antifouling free eco bottom paint was not a success unfortunately so for the next season we decided to remove all growth, lightly sand it and apply two coats of Trilux Hard Antifouling. Luckily we had a week or two of warmer weather this spring, the temperature was well over 5 degrees, so we could do the job before the launch without the need of more tarps or heaters. We were in the first round for the boat launch this year. Scarlett is already in the water again!  We also got a new 10 Kg Delta type anchor on the bow sprit roller. For now I decided not to install an anchor winch, that might be a project for later.
