Zeke’s Yard Haulout- Photos

Yep, this is Chasamba. But no, we haven’t been at the bottom of the sea, luckily. We knew we had some rust issues, and this is why we got to Port Carmen as soon as we could, but we had no idea just how deep some of it was! Oren made this hole with a screwdriver, easily.

Almost out! I’m up on the deck, Oren is directing activities on the ground.

Not bad, huh?

And then we scraped and ground and sanded and filled and painted primer three coats and antifouling three coats, nothing really…

Tired but happy…

Chasamba is beautiful again, at least from the side. Now we just have to do the deck…

To be continued…(but first we are having a rest and plan to go to snorkel with whale sharks in Oslob tomorrow!)
