Painting and Pain - Ship yard style

Spent 16 hours yesterday cleaning and painting welds and bare spots on Caratello yesterday.  Made me feel like I was 18 again - chipping, grinding, and painting in the Coast Guard.  Trouble was I woke up with my 53 year old body that didn't appreciate crawling around in the bilge frames hunched over with a wire brush.  I didn't know you could wear out paint brushes, but you can.  I think that going through 2 gallons of two part epoxy paint with a 2" brush is the 11th ring of Hell.  Yes, I know that there were only seven rings but you try doing this and you will probably agree that Dante was wrong.

With medical reimbursements going down Dr. B takes on a side job.
