Walking the plank

Well, lying on the plank actually. Today we decided to have a go at painting the flashes at the stern of the boat which meant doing it from a plank precariously placed over the water. Rick showed no fear and did the painting to two thirds of the way across and I did the other third. He being left handed and me being right handed worked out well.
The ladies got another coat of paint on the gunwales and we all did a bit of pink undercoating (ready for the red paint tomorrow). Lastly of course we got another undercoat on the roof and in the well deck, this time without Rick putting his foot in the wet paint.

Tomorrow we do the first top coats so we will see for the first time how the colours work out.
