Saturday 28-November-2017 is Sculptor's 82nd birthday

Sculptor - a boat built by boat builders rather than a boat built by ship builders - and so much more elegant for that.

Dry Docking Day 2

All the preparation of yesterday turned into action today.  Blacking was the order of the day with attention paid to the guards and any gaps around them to be filled with blacking, followed by rolling on blacking to the flatter areas, including of course the rudder and the area around the swim.

At the same time undercoat was applied to the tunnel bands and the fore end rubbed down and primed, as were the planks.

We will need to undercoat the fore end tomorrow, put another coat of blacking on the hull which will leave us to put a glass coat on the fore end when we arrive back in Stoke Bruerne.

A link to today's images is here.

Volunteer hours 32 (total 504 to date).
