Bottom Job and Christening of my “new to me” boat INSPIRATION
After sailing Santalocura home from Mexico to Fort Lauderdale, I knew she was in need of some lovin’ on her bottom. I took her to none other than my trusted friend Craig and his crew at Yacht Management Group at Harbor Town Marina in Dania Beach, Florida.
Eddie helped haul out her out expertly and she was blocked and prepped for the work that needed to be done. She needed full sanding and bottom paint, a few gel coat repairs, a new through-hull for air conditioning intake line, compound and wax on hull sides, and prop speed.
I also added some DripperGuards – to keep the water stains off the hull. I used those on Vitamin D and I was highly impressed with the way they work. Every boat should apply this cheap solution that really keeps a boat looking it’s best!
Lance and Donna from Girard Graphics came out to install the new logo that was created by my beautiful friend Babi. They did an excellent job and be sure to know they put blood and sweat into their work, but NO tears!
Rick was there for the haul out and splash to expertly maneuver Inspiration through the very pricey boats at the marina!
Finally – I learned the hard way – that Posiedon needs to be appeased very early in the renaming time frame – so we had the Christening party the very same day she came home from the yard with her new Logo and name INSPIRATION.
