Marina Seca Guaymas

The blisters were pretty bad this haul out...  Bad enough that the dreaded, "Have to remove the Gelcoat" option became a reality.  I probably won't go all the way to the bottom as there are only gelcoat blisters below where I have already ground.

This project would have been a nightmare in the states.  Just finding a DIY yard with affordable lay days, no enviromental restrictions and a hot dry climate would be next to impossible.  Then, imagine looking forward to spending any amount of free time holding a seven pound grinder at shoulder height for hours...  That is the problem with trying to squeeze in your dreams around the 9 to 5 .  It is hard enough to find time to do laundry let alone grind gelcoat off a boat hull.  At a certain point, you have to quit the job and make do with what you saved.  Of course I will have to head back to work for another spell but for now, with this project, I can do an hour of grinding, bullshit with my yachtie neighbors, do another half hour of grinding, bullshit with my yachtie neighbors, do another fifteen minutes of grinding, bullshit with my yachtie neighbors...

One foot in front of the other and don't let your imagination get too far ahead of the job at hand. Good luck,
