Slipping progress of Aurora V

Since Aurora V arrived on the slip, work is underway for the Antifoul process to begin. She is being water blasted at 500psi, then will be primed and then the antifoul will be applied.

Antifouling is the process of protecting the hull from marine growth by applying a protective paint layer to the bottom the boat. The antifoul used is environmentally friendly and to approved Australian standard.
