Paintfest day 12 - details details

As well as further top coats today in various places , we had a huge list of detail jobs to do. Gas locker handle, mushroom vents, T studs, etc etc. We are now deploying a daily list so the little jobs don't get overlooked.

I really like the contrast of the red and dark grey paint where they meet, as on the foredeck.

Tomorrow will be the final day of painting apart from perhaps some tiny details. The reason for this is that we have to leave the wet dock at 5pm on Friday and we don't want any wet paint at that time. Friday will be paint drying, clearing up and packing away, and possibly some of the signwriting.
All very exhausting but we have been fortified by regular evenings at the pub, and tomorrow we promise ourselves a lunch of all day breakfast at the cafe at Cowley lock. Yum. We desrve it.

I take my (very large) hat off to you all. Hard work to do mentally as well as physically. Looks good.
