COVID-19 is still spreading all over the world, but China has changed the policy from zero to with COVID-19. The global policy is now with it and yacht owners are now coming back to the shipyard at Carmen, Cebu for their suspended repair works, which made the shipyard extremely busy. It has been planned to dry up whole hull until mid Feb for further repair of hull, however the other boats need to dry up, so it has been decided to expedite cleaning remaining parts of hull, repair osmosis, epoxy coating with a layer of fiber mat and hull bottom paint. I will go home to Osaka, Japan next week but hull repair works will be carried on, then Isana will be on the water again on Feb 6 at full moon, high tide.
