I’m swimming 1km every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to get in shape for racing in Florida in February. Swimming builds endurance, stamina and strength without blowing out the knees! What are you doing?

We’re all finished and boy is she going to look good for the boat show. The bottom has been painted and now there’s just a little burnishing to do once we get to the show in January. The guys at Bristol have been absolutely fantastic. From words of advise to loaning us a pneumatic sander, right down to donating the space in the shop to do the work. Thanks everyone!

Time for new bottom paint! Thanks to the kind donation of shop space from Bristol Marine, I’m taking OGOC out to Bristol Marine so we can put some new bottom paint on and get her all burnished up for the boat show!
