18th May - Motored Halo with Murray round to Evans Bay Slipway. Loaded on to quick slip and water blasted the hull and then boat taken into position on the hard for painting etc.
Purchased the antifoul paint from Bartons: 4 lt. International Ultra 2 White, 1 lt International Ultra 2 Black, and 1 lt. International Primocon Primer Grey.
Sven and Peter agreed to do the paint work.
Travis from TS Marine repaired the stripped thread on one of the bolts on the Stuffing Box and replaced the packing.
Removed the Mainsail Cover and took to John Worth at City Sea Canvas Ltd to re-sew the zip.
Re-fitted and sealed the bolts holding the boarding ladder. 
26th May - Motored Halo with Peter back to Chaffers Manina.
