The New Dauntless on a mooring in Scotland, flying her purple Kadey Krogen flag.
Just in case you missed it, here are the pictures of Dauntless, before and after her winter in Ireland.
It was a transformative time!
In the Beginning. 3 years ago
When I get back to Dauntless in a couple of weeks, it will be time to get her wet again.
The New Dauntless, on the hard. The missing anti-foul was caused by straps of the travel lift. The green sheen is organic growth just above the anti-foul.
Then, just days later, we will take the first steps in our voyage back to North America.
I will miss Ireland. I will miss the friends I made and the people who worked on Dauntless like she was their own. We’ll have to make it back there some day.
Gary Mooney, the GRP and Painter, was meticulous in mixing and applying the AWLGRIP paints.
This is the layer of the undercoat for the anti-foul going on.

The New Anti-Foul. The scrapes pulled off some of the undercoat.
My latest scratch/scrape
Fall 2015 Dauntless is strapped down for the winter. Dauntless was hit by winds of over 100 mph this past winter while in New Ross. But since it wasnt a “named” storm, it was just another winter in the northern Atlantic and therefore boats are strapped down.
