I think they were the highest spec at the time, so usually had any extras available

Cheers fella, old man's worked hard! She looks good after 5 years on the mooring. Takes a lot of effort each year to revive her, but worth it.

That looks amazing. I agree that its looking almost new!

I have a big bag of cleaning stuff for this weekend, ready for the Anglesey trip.

I wanted to ask you though - How did you find it dropping her off the trailer to do the hull? I have some hull cleaner, restorer and wax as I never got round to sending her to a professional – oh and some filler for the slight knock I have and I want to do it all this weekend, but with her on the trailer it’s a right PITA.

I have two options, one is to back the trailer up onto car ramps to lift it all up a bit to make it easier to get under, or the second is to pull her off the trailer and rock her over on some tyres.

We got it done professionally this year. Depends on the weight of the boat re rolling her, any more than 5m and that's a lot if weight to be putting on tubes. We normally just get under the trailer, to do the hull ourselves.
