The starboard rudder did not hold the previous paint well; I don't know if it was due to the rudders being newly made, the fresh epoxy surface. . .But since Vaea was out of the water, might as well refresh the whole bottom, eh?  The rudders got a coat of epoxy primer, followed by 5-6 topcoats of anti-foul; the hulls got 2 topcoats of anti-foul.

Hi Kim, this is because the starboard hull is faster than the port hull, or is it the other way round?

Must be all the right-hand turns. . . ;-)
