There are several images, so this page will take a minute or

|Facing the bow, on the hard ground.|
|The repaired blisters and the bare spots of fiberglass were painted over with primer.|
|Facing the port beam. This shows Myste's full keel rather well. The paint cost US$160 a gallon: one gallon was enough for a little more than one coat. Myste got two full goats, and then parts of her got a third coat.|
|This is the 'before' picture of Myste's rudder, showing the propeller and the 'self-bailing system' holes above it. The red paint is the coat that was under the blue coat--- the blue had worn off.|
|This is the 'after' picture of Myste's rudder. I used red paint because it had 3 percent more copper than the other available Trinidad bottom paint.|
|The stern of Myste. The Port of Origin reads 'Earth, Sol System.'|
