Herbie approaches home in her new livery. How will she look?
A very busy last day in the dock and I did manage to get the basic name signwritten on one side only. The shading will have to be done later. Trying to paint the sign with people continually hopping on and off the boat was a nightmare. The panel was rocking and bobbing and sliding left and right as the brush hovered over the marks. I'll be glad to finish it off properly in more sedate surroundings sometime soon.
Many many many thanks to Rick, Marilyn, David and Simon, who freely gave of their time and expertise. There is no way we could have done this without their help.
I have plenty of pics and info to share when I have more time next week, and some interesting lists of do's &dont's and unusual suggestions for the shopping list of would be boat painters.
Meanwhile I'm off home for a nice bath.
