Being spring is coming early there's a lot of things we have to get done. One of the main things is getting the boat ready to take it down to the marina. This year though we have to strip and paint the bottom before it goes in the water. Luckily, the paint that is on the bottom is thicker so as you go to strip it, it falls off pretty easily. The one thing that's the hardest when you're painting the bottom besides being messy is that you have to jack the boat up off the trailer to paint the small surfaces that are hidden from their supports of the trailer. Its called the balancing act but we blocked it so there's no chance of it falling on us.
