rudder was especially bad for some reason. Here you can see a heavy distribution
of blisters at te bottom of the rudder.

centerboard was removed to repair some damaged fiberglass inside the trunk
(recessed slot where board fits). This also allowed us to paint the board
properly. The diagonal line shows old (original paint) on top and new paint

farm in Bundaberg. Bundy is a farming community speacializing in sugar cane (a
sugar refinery and rum distillery are located in Bundy). They also grow a huge
