    Default Relaunch dates

    Thought it was about time we had another post on this forum....

    Talking to another esteemed East Coast forumite last night, and he's planning to get his keel wet in the 3rd week of March.... what are your own plans?

    Is this a cunning post to work out how soon you can go a-crewing (until Magna Carter Mk 2 arrives)?

    We're scheduled back in at the Haven at the beginning of April, move to Shotley a week or so later. (assuming I can keep the weather gods pacified to allow me to get the jobs done)

    Not sorted yet.

    Still thinking about painting the hull.
    I have permission to use the company workshop lorry lift any week-end.
    If we do the deed it will probably over Easter.
    Hopefully have a 1st sail soon after.

    What inexpensive anti-fouling would people recommend for the east coast?

    Compass worked really really well for me in the last 2 seasons.... dirt cheap, and no more fouling than the guys that used really expensive stuff....
