FL's bottom, day five.

We had a good pie in the Blue Rooms, a nice warm room in the Crown Hotel with a full English breakfast which set us up for the last day of working on the hull.

There wasn't much left to do, the weed hatch was rubbed down and coated with Intertuf - it looked to me that this is the first time the hatch has ever been painted - you have to despair at some of these so called professional boat yards, this is probably the third/fourth time FL has been blacked. - Sue went over to the chandlers to get new weed hatch sealing tape.

Weed hatch blacked.

The tunnel band curves were painted in and the engineer fitted the Vetus stern tube seal, I did enquire about having a conventional grease seal fitted at some future date, it can be done but I'll have to save up for it.

Smart bands

The old scruffy bands
Glad that's over with, I'm now coming down with Sue's lergy so instead of going to the pub for that well earned pint I'm staying in the warm.
