We thought this might be our home, and now they're tearing it apart!!!

In this week's video, we watch as Tucker does unfortunately take the Hunter we towed in last week, and demolishes it into tiny pieces to fit into the dumpster they had brought in for this purpose. (Sorry Greg!!) I don't know what the rules are on this, but next time they have a boat brought in for demo, we're going to see if there is a way to list it for sale for a period of time first, just in case there is someone out there willing to bring it back to life.

In OUR boat, I kind of take over the show for the week, walking away from fairing bulkheads, and focus on getting bilge paint into a few of our tucked away areas. In the master head I coat the area just behind our shower, where our watermaker will sit on the top portion, and the holding tank will sit below the counter.

In our guest hull I go to work in the bilge area, sanding it and getting it ready to paint. This is one of our 'tougher to access all corners' areas, so I can definitely see why Matt gave the job to me. Just before painting we decided to switch to a barrier coat - which we did get two coats on! - but now we have to wait 5 days for that to cure before moving forward again.
