Bottom Scraping – continued


Saturday December 29th

More “Bottom Scraping” today, another 6 hours or so in the workshop but despite the seemingly slow progress I feel that I’m on the home straight at least with regards to getting the hull scraped in preparation for next steps. In addition to the layers of anti-fouling red paint the tedious job of carefully removing all of the old (waterlogged) filler accounted for much of the time spent. Goal one of course is to strip everything back in order to assess condition of timber before deciding next steps. A bit concerned at condition of a few areas of both pairs of inner two planks (adjacent to the keel) where advice will be needed.
