The first two pictures show Sunshine with repairs underway to fill and fair the areas which were ground out for blister repair. The grey spots are ground out, the red areas are spots which have been filled and are ready to sand. The third photo shows the damage to the flybridge canvas.

Sunshine spent the entire summer waiting on the Lovetts to finish their yard and house work after being gone for an entire year. On October 1, 2009 Sunshine was hauled for new bottom paint. We found quite a case of blisters which needed to be repaired. Jeff and Anne and I worked for a couple of long weekends grinding blisters and waxing. Jeff completed most of the waxing and also a lion's share of the grinding. Sunshine has set on the hard since then waiting out a long cold and wet winter for the hull to dry out. We have finally begun the repairs on the blisters. As of today we are probably nearly half way completed with blister repair.

We had a storm with winds to 60 mph back in February. The wind pretty well shredded the eisenglass on the fly bridge. So now we have a restitched enclosure with all new eisenglass.
