Shipyard work, paint prep, repairs and living in the Rio Dulce area

Now the boat is out of the water, work begins to sand the boat down, repair cracks and generally prepare the boat for its primer and top coats, after it goes into the paint shed. While the boat is out, the dinghy becomes essential in a place like Rio Dulce, as everywhere is on the water, restaurants, shops, bars and of course the marina. We even saw a dinghy dock for a dentist the other day. This video shows the dinghy outboard repairs, our venture out into Lake Izabel using the RAM marina launch, and El Golfito, on our repaired dinghy.
