Water Tank Painting

Wayne and Sherrill Bower have been working on TEELOK's water tanks for some time. Last fall when they opened up the tanks, they found the paint that they had applied some eight years previous had blistered. After talking with some technical types at Sherman-Williams and International Paint, they learned that they had closed up the tanks too soon. Being an epoxy paint, it was hard as nails and removal was a real joy. Anyway, after numerous weeks of work, they managed to get them clean and repainted. They are now waiting several weeks before closing them back up. Wayne says that he doesn't want to go through that job again. Wayne and Sherrill plan to stay in the Chesapeake this year, and hopefully will be able to attend the Labor Day Rendezvous.
