Boat Being Taken Out Of The Water
Take a deep breath... A week to go until she goes back in the water with the hull freshly protected.
Not to Be Alarmed...
Typical pitting and corrosion you will more than likely find dotted around your boats hull.
A Scrapper Is All It Takes
With a little elbow grease and plenty of arm ache you will soon have the pitting under control.
Making Head Way...
This is the turning point, the light a the end of the tunnel! The preparation is nearly finished!
The Stern Prepared.
Here you can see the stern has totally been prepared and is ready for the first coat of protective paint.
The Bow Prepared
Here you can see the bow has totally been prepared and is ready for the first coat of protective paint.
Not essential but when you have taken the time and effort we had getting this hull back to metal a quick coat of protective primer was no bother at all.
First Coat Of Bitumen
With a couple of days to go, a good weather forecast, there is plenty of time for a few good coats of bitumen before she goes back in the water.
The hard work has paid of she is looking like new. Just a shame most of it is under the waterline!
