Paintfest day 2 -Out damned spot

Day 2 completed and every square inch of Herbie above gunwale level has been rubbed down, every (we hope) tiny speck of rust has been rubbed back to bare metal and Fertan-ed. The boat at this stage looks awful.
Still we've had a jolly time with frequent breaks for tea and cake. Our picture above shows the whole crew -Simon, David, Kath, me, Rick and Marilyn.
Today we start priming all the Fertan-ed spots, and getting rid of all the dust. Now we're starting to ponder the order of the real painting - which bits to do in which order - a bit of a conundrum with three colours to incorporate. - four if you count the lining, five ifyou count the raddle for the roof. Blimey!

Fantastic crew you have there indeed, Neil. How great to have somewhere covered where you can paint. I wish we had that here, but sadly painting has to be done between showers.

I can't wait to see the new colour scheme emerging. It will be quite an unveiling, won't it?
