Painting, painting and more painting

This boat is only 35ft or 11.5m long and 10 ft/ 3m beam and yet it is taking ages to paint.

Trouble is that all new wood needs two coats of primer and two more undercoats and then two topcoats each sanded down and filled to get the finish as smooth as possible.

This includes all the hidden lockers! There are so many.

Next week is ‘let’s put the deck fittings back’ week. Let’s hope Rye remains dry.

I am a well traveled, globe-trotting vessel with great lines. I am told I give a comfortable ride for my years. Although a little worn out I am looking forward to getting back onto the water after a full service.
