A day of painting...

When we arrived at the boat today we had a slight problem with the front doors, they had swelled slightly with all the damp in the air and jambed shut, should have known better really and coated them with a sealer when they were fitted. No real problem just meant we lost some time adjusting the lock and planing a bit off the meeting stiles. It's been nice today so a coat of varnish we applied should stop it from happening again.

Taking full advantage of the weather we started blacking the hull, the old blacking was very thin and had started wearing off in places, 5ltrs has gone a lot further than we thought so we intend to keep adding as many coats as we can until it runs out.

The rest of the day was spent planning how the kitchen would be constructed next week.
