Birthday bananza Painting weekend!!

A few friends including brother Nick and Maddy up from Edinburgh for my birthday
weekend, so what a fine opportunity to get some painting done on the boat!! The fine crack team of painters formed early on Sunday morning to paint the decks on the Hestur. I have now finished all the trimmings over the decks including a capping piece covering the plywood edges around the cockpit and fordeck - I ended up steaming this on in one bit much easier and quicker than laminating it in several bits. I also added a toe-rail and grip strips along the main deck. After this a lot of sanding to get the surfaces ready for the painters arriving this weekend. The picture on the left here is one of the painters (Nick) late on friday night.....!
and look at the concentration shown here cutting in that tricky two pack thick undercoat paint... wonderfull.
