We finally got round to getting Freyja out of the water a bit to have a look at her bottom. It wasn't a pretty sight I can tell you. A layer of barnacles had attached themselves to her undersides - no doubt slowing her more than a bit through the water.

See? This was after we'd been attacking her bot for a while with brushes and a scraper. Oh, it was awful. 

We were up on the hard at Goat Island in Stornoway harbour - and still are as I write - waiting for the water to arrive again. High tide at 10pm today so looks like it may be a late one.

Of course we can't leave her like that so IF we get a sunny day again soon, I'll get her our out again and slosh some of that foul paint on her. That'll teach her!
