Finally Done Painting! Splashing Tomorrow!

We are going back in the water tomorrow.  We have been painting like mad trying to get all the coats on so we can get back to the more enjoyable part of cruising.  Tomorrow afternoon can’t come soon enough.

We have been having so much fun I don’t know where to start….how about the A-hole yard manager, the language barrier between us and all the employees, the freezing cold shower, the overpriced and very limited supplies, the one restaurant that is never open and the swarms of mosquitoes.  Get us back in the water!

Here are some pics of the past few days.  The paint came out great.  We’ll roll one final coat on the bottom tomorrow then remove the blue tape on the lower part of the boot stripe and splash Ellie! 

p.s. We went with a tropical theme…..that green on the boot stripe was the only tint of green paint in all of French Polynesia (not exaggerating).
