Beauty!

On Monday, Dave and Liam used a lot of spit and polish, washing and waxing on TT’s paintwork. So here’s some interesting before and after (the boathouse experience) photos to compare, no air-brushing required.
 
Gunnels before…

The well deck after, with 5 coats of anti-slip paint – deceptive in the sun…

Sign writing (both sides) of the bow…

Checkout that shine – the sides didn’t need repainting. So after a clean up, wax and polish from Captain Dave and son, there’s more reflection than sheen in this photo. Even next door’s boat is in there…!

Ah…
 
For obvious reasons I haven’t been able to blog every day this week, we’ve been too busy having fun with family and friends while Liam and Maddy are here.
 
Meanwhile we’ve also had to find time to sort out a boat that still needs lots of attention (nothing new as far as the boat’s concerned then). Liam’s out with his mates today, so Dave’s abandoned the finishing touches to the bathroom in favour of rectifying some of the damage in the bedroom. I mean from the hidden water leak (which has been fixed) but it isn’t going to be an overnight job.
 
More about the downside I mean inside if I get chance tomorrow, we’re cream knackered…
