M/V Mary Ellen Jones gets souged

I think that's the proper term. If not, I'm sure someone will correct me.

The boat passed Huntington this morning. The clear sky, the angle of the sun and the boat's white paint made me wish I had adjusted my camera settings a little differently. That's what happens when you change your settings when you're getting shots in certain light and forget to change them back right away.

As it passed me, I got a photo of it from the side. When I got home and uploaded it to my computer, I noticed these two guys. At first I thought they might be painting, but on further review it looks more like they're giving the boat's exterior a good cleaning.

I think that's called souging or sougeeing or something like that. You guys who do this for a living can set me straight.
