Sails On, Sails Off.......

Sails Up and Checked

It was a busy Friday on Brown Eyes, removing the 3 sails ready for a hull respray next month.  The lacquer on the hull seems to have been flaking off for a number of years now and whilst this is only cosmetic and does not affect her sailing performance, having her resprayed will bring her back to her former glory.  Whilst out of the water we will also check the sail-drive, apply anti-fouling and check the anodes and prop.
All the canvas removed and packed away, ready for the hull respray.
Brown Eyes is now over 30 years old, but is a solid and well crafted yacht - good for another 30 years at least!
