The paint brushes have been in use again, a different colour paint this time. The seat lockers in the cratch and the front bulkhead needed attention. My usual process was followed, a good going over with the orbital sander any stubborn rust areas then blitz with a paint stripping disc on a angle grinder, then hand rubbed with wet&dry paper.
A coat of rust converter/ primer before an undercoat, when dry a gentle rub with wet& dry, I used 600 grit, dust wiped away with white spirit then the top coat applied.
The Homebrew boat pulled in with only Barry aboard, Sandra being away on granny duties, we haven't seen them since last year, so it was great to have a catch up with Barry over a couple of glasses of vino.
|Barry leaving next day.|
