Winter Antifouling and polish

Sep 24, 2016

A great couple of weeks on the hard at Orams Marine, getting some new anti fouling on the bottom of Endless Summer, prop speed on the shaft and prop to stop weed and growth.  However to must almost the most important job is wax and polish of the topsides the hull.  This annual event has really saving Endless Summer over the years with great protection on the fibreglass hull.

I can not say enough about getting some wax on the boat it sure does protect under the harsh NZ sun. 

The black Antifouling is wearing well with very little slime growing during the season.
