The Vrijheid is ready for the onslaught of winter with a sparkling new coat of paint. Much of the exterior experienced more than a light sanding before painting as cruising does tend to result in skuffs and similar damage to the overall appearance. The hull paint has held up so well we have decided to put this off until next spring. If the worst comes to the worst we will apply in drydock as our four yearly survey anniversary date will be 2010.
For one reason or another we are gutted to has missed our possible cruising dates for the latter part of 2009. Work and spending time with friends and family has certainly taken its tole, thuogh most enjoyable a diversion they have been. So we are both looking forward to a more fuller calendar in 2010.
