Moved to the owner's yard in 2020, put under cover then blasted with glass beads to open up any blisters. Washed twice with hot water pressure washer then left to dry for 5 months before epoxy coating the hull, then painting both above and below the waterline. The painting was completed with Grey epoxy paint and UV additive above the waterline and sprayed on antifouling onto the epoxy below the waterline.
