You guys asked for it, so here it is… the start of our new series of videos on maintenance, upgrades, equipment and gear reviews and more as we begin our 2015 re-fit of ‘Sophisticated Lady’ here at Rodney Bay Marina in St Lucia, Caribbean… the new series aptly called “JUST ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE!”

Our sailboat refit begins at the IGY Rodney Bay Marina in Rodney Bay, St Lucia, Caribbean… The video series sponsored in part by IGY Marinas and Budget Marine Chandleries of St Maarten, begins with the haulout of ‘Sophisticated Lady’ at the shipyard of Rodney Bay Marina… the only IGY Marina in the chain of over 12 marinas across the Caribbean that has full haulout, maintenance, and repair facilities!

‘Sophisticated Lady’ is a bit overdue on her out of water maintenance, so this is going to be a big project.. but now we are at the start of getting a new epoxy bottom, followed by anti-fouling paint, and a complete cosmetic makeover topsides including lipstick and eye-liner! We’ll be engaged in several projects during the haulout that will be documented to illustrate the capabilities of the boatyard, and continue to show you more and more of what it actually takes to live on a sailboat in the Caribbean, or anywhere else for that matter! Keep an eye out for future episodes, and don’t forget to check out our sponsors at the links below! 🙂
