Inland Seas On the Hard, Day 4 - October 26, 2011

Today the crew (Capt. Tom, Allen & Bob) purged the potable water system with compressed air and flushed the head intakes and drains with red pop (non-toxic antifreeze).  Yesterday Allen and Bob drained the muffler, FW pumps and filters.

We also finished sanding the topsides and began on the hull bottom.  Also working on bulwarks, which have some rust that takes a bit of time to grind away and treat with two primers.

We are hoping to paint early next week.    --Capt. Tom
Allen Wolfe - the well equipped schooner sander

Bob Hagerman works on preping the bottom

Almost ready for paint
