True grit

While we've been busy spending money on 'extras' we have managed to make a substantial saving on our budget by deciding not to get the shell grit blasted. With nearly half the boat now new steel and the rest actually looking in not too bad condition we decided to go the labour intensive hand prep route instead. And chief painter Vicky has thrown herself into the job (and thrown the power sander into the cut - fortunately it worked again after dripping dry!) Her hard graft with the sander, the linisher and much elbow grease has already made great improvements.
