Blacking Day 2.

Brrrrrrrr what a cold day.

It was so cold we had icicles in the dry dock, but the show must go on.

Even Bramble was set to work this morning. We were not blacking today as I wanted to give it a whole day to harden off before adding the second coat. So today was a day for undercoating and glossing.

I glossed our noticeboards.

I then got on with painting the bow and the tunnel bands are nearly finished. Even though it was perishing the gloss is drying, so I am hoping tomorrow I can get on with a lot more.

Whilst I got on with painting Keith blacked the weed hatch cover and then later in the afternoon, I put a coat of red on the lid.

Today seemed to flyby but it may have been that there was a lot going on today. The boat next door has had its hull blacked today and some other paintwork done, so a busy day one way or another. I am now looking forward to dinner and an early night.
