Bottom has about 12 average size blisters that should repaired It will also need a fresh bottom paint job.
Exterior projects are blister repaired, bottom painted, running gear inspected and maintained, hull waxed, deck wood work or trim refinished, sail equipement re-rigged, all deck equipment (staysail track has a leak into cabin) inspected and maintained, electronics updated (GPS/Chart Plotter, Depth Sounder, Wind and Speed all not working and need replacement), etc., etc.
