Even More Painting

Yet another busy day painting today. Jo put another coat of dark blue gloss on the cratch, a further coat of the new blue on the port engine room doors and frame, and the starboard engine room hatch. I did further touching up of the coachline between the red an blue on the cabinsides, then finished off the 2nd water can's sign writing, and gave the headlamp case a coat of black. Good thing I did too, as I discovered that the cable connection in the deck plug was next to useless, and I wondered how it ever worked! Yesterday evening we both set about putting back the ribbon and lace plates behind the boatman's cabin stove, rearranging them and getting more in the space with them sorted our properly, and not the higgledy piggledy mix previously. Today Jo finished the stove area off, giving the stove a coat of blacking, and the copper kettle even got a much needed polish, and very smart it all looks too. Keith.

Wow! what a shiny kettle. Great job painting and sprucing up the boat...a never-ending job. We will have our "bright work" stripped and redone once we get back to Florida at the end of the month. This will be the first time in 10 years that my husband and I haven't done this onerous task ourselves. I for one, am thrilled to be giving the job to someone else, even if it means a hefty lay-out of $$$.

We love keeping Hadar looking spick and span. I just have the copper and brass on the engine to polish, perhaps tomorrow. Keith
