Paintfest day 11 - hard work, good results




Too knackered to write much! When all this is over I'll have loads to tell you, but for now here is where we are with three days to go before we finish. The roof is finished -hooray!

The sides are in their proper colours but with one more dark grey and two more light grey coats to do. Most of the rest of the boat awaits a final top coat.

Still a bit hard to see how it all looks because of the masking tape, but I reckon it's going to be good.

You'd never guess the most dificult and exhausting bit so far - the masking up! Trying to get a bit of sticky tape to exactly follow a forty foot line to millimeter accuracy with the boat moving and your body twisted at an awkward angle is agony. The actual painting is a doddle in comparison. And quick too. Rick and I painted both boat sides in two colours in two hours.
Things won't look a lot different tomorrow night except that the paint will have more layers.
