After installing the new rudder and tiller, I got Lil' Mule II's antifouling (International Cruiser Uno) rolled on. There are two coats along the waterline, and one overall. I'll add a final layer right before the upcoming relaunch.

What is left before the relaunch?

- Putting the trim on
- putting the portal plexiglass on
- building and installing the sliding door
- putting some of the hardware back on.

Not a heck of a lot! Of course there remains some work in the interior, mainly the fore cabin, which I have stopped working on and needs a lot of work (not on the ceiling, just the lower surfaces), and the electronics. These, I will save for the winter.
