Dufour 40 “Frogs” on the Travel-Lift

A short trip to Wesport Marina in Sidney BC to haul out and apply anti-fouling bottom paint and check the bottom (perfect) and replace the zinc anodes ( to prevent electrolysis and damage to the  folding prop). These guys are real pros and everything was very smooth, up, power wash, bottom paint, Gelcoat shine, down and back at Oak Bay Marina. Still pretty cool for cruising, we left with the end of the flood  with the decks all frosty and slippery. The new bimini provides great shelter from the rain. We also got to test the new Chartplotter and charts from Garmin. Quite a change from the older version, it will take some manual reading to master the new technology!
