27 june 2006:    day 42

- copper coat antifouling applied today

- it is an epoxy based anti-foul and is rated for up to 10 years between applications,

but in these warm waters we will be happy to get any more than 5 years before needing to


- the anti-foul needs to stand for 3 days before a light sand, followed by the big "splash"

- the brown colour will  change to a coppery green/blue when in the sea

- we should be launching in a few more days (feels like an eternity!)
