Blacking day one

Two years ago FL was hauled out for blacking, today is her next out of the water trip, this time up the slip at Stafford boat club. The clubs friendly 'Dads Army' do an excellent job of winching the boats out of the canal.
Up she comes.

Getting busy with the jet washer

Gunnel scars rubbed down 

Any bare metal got a coat of Aqua Steel by the end of the day, tomorrow the first coat of blacking goes on, weather permitting. 

There's a descent bar in the club house here, so a well deserved ale is on the cards later on.
