And repeat...

Scrape. Wire brush. Scotchbrite. Wipe down. Paint.
Repeat from 3 ad nauseum.

So far have done two fuel tanks (added first stage of Nitromoors), six floor sections, two fuel tank hatch covers, and the ducting for the engine breather. The floors may actually be finished today! Then we get started in the engine room itself, plus I get to scrub out the hold, where the bright newly painted surface we left is not all covered in rust again.... But never fear, it's only from all the grindings when the knee were done. I've just ordered a load of timber too, for the hold floors and new top planks.


  1. It is important to keep in mind at times like this that Chertsey is classed as a pleasure boat.

  2. I was expecting to read "Not another bedspread", but that seems not to be here! Did you publish it by mistake just now, and immediately withdraw it, when you really meant it for tomorrow? (It's easy to do, isn't it? Sometimes hitting "return" puts in a line break, sometimes it seems to publish!)

  3. That's the automatic back-up Halfie, in case I can't post on any given day - I forgot to change the date. One post per day and one post only! It'll turn up one day when there's nothing else to write about.
