I have finally finished painting the roof ... hooray. I counted the cost of all that paint + :
Primer £79, Undercoat, £74 Top coat, £80, brushes rollers white spirit, masking tape & sanding sheets £45
Total = £204 - I have still got half a tin of primer and a tin of undercoat left over.
Not cheap but cheaper than hiring a professional.
I used Craftmaster paint which seems a little thicker and flows better than International paint I have used in the past.
The job done looks OK, it will keep rust spots at bay for a good few years. Now I have done the job once I think I could probably make a better job of it next time.
I've started on the starboard roof rail, both the brass bolts holding the centre line cleat snapped when I removed it. They drilled out easy enough but will have to tap some new threads before refitting.
Aston Marina grounds are being used as a park & ride for this weekends Stone Food & Drink Festival ,handy for moorers too. We had a look around the marquees, over 100 food and drink outlets, most were doing a good trade.
A few different breweries were represented including our favourite the Titanic.
|Titanic wasn't busy at 11:00am|
