That's the hard graft completed.

Still tucked up in our little shed.

Today was spent buffing off the sides especially below the water line. I even got into the weed hatch and gave that a good going over and that is now all blacked. Once I had finished I had to sweep up all the dust and dirt which was enough to fill a 5 litre bucket which a lot of boat yards just leave on the hull and paint over it. Personally I prefer my paint to be attached to the steel work not dirt which can lift off. Its the old story, if you want a job done well, do it yourself.

I have made a start with the blacking but by 5.30 it was time to put away the brush and head off to the showers for a nice long hot shower, Oh those aching muscles.
