More Painting

Jo and I have been busy today painting. Jo put a 3rd coat of the new blue on the port cabinside and boatman's cabin bulkhead, a 2nd coat on the starboard engine 'ole frame and a 1st coat on the top of the boatman's cabin slide, then a coat of white also on the slide. I painted the white bands and the edge of the pouring spout on the 2nd water can, which is now ready for sign writing, and a coat of the new blue on the bucket. Jo is now painting the bow blue.

Red, white and cheery and bright. Great job.

Hello Rosemary. The red, white and blue colour scheme started in 1937 to celebrate the coronation of King George VI, but only lasted two years as at the outbreak of War in 1939 another, simpler, duller colour scheme was adopted. Keith
