Haulout 2013, Day Eight

I took a break from the boat and made a day trip up to Atlanta to meet Tanya and the kids at the Georgia Aquarium.  Tanya didn’t tell the kids I was coming, so it was fun to surprise them.  We enjoyed the aquarium, then we all drove back to Ft Pierce.

On the boat, the engine rooms received a second coat of paint.  They could probably use a third, but I think we’re going to call two good enough.  Cleaning and painting these engine rooms is no fun and we’re losing Paul’s dedication to the work.  We also want to give it a couple days to let the paint harden up before putting the engines in and the clock is ticking.
