Motored Halo round to Evans Bay Quickslip for hull inspection, clean, and zinc anode replacement. 

Gave the hull a wash with soft brush. Removed the Speed Log Paddle Wheel unit and cleaned inside the shaft where the big algae was growing. Explains why it wasn't working even though the wheel itself had been cleaned from inside. Cleaned the prop and shaft with steelo pad and replaced the 1" zinc anode.  

 Sven considered that anti-foul still had plenty of life in it and will be good for another 6 months or so.
