Repairing Easy Go
Our plans were to head somewhere warm for the winter of 2010/11 but our experience with Hurricane Earl changed those plans. Always been tough to follow "Plan A". So we hauled Easy Go in Saint Peter's on Cape Breton Island and got to work on the repairs. I dove the bottom before we hauled and it was evident that some repairs were needed.I also wanted to check the hull keel joint to ensure that this was all okay. Once the boat was out of the water the damage appeared to be insignificant. A few days repair working around rapidly cooling fall weather and rain storms saw all the repairs made. In the spring we will put on a couple of coats of bottom paint and launch Easy Go.
We did another Photo Essay showing the work that was needed and how we accomplished it. Look at the photos here:
