I Hate Painting!

Just spent the the last five days painting, decks, coachroof, cockpit and antifouling oh, and replacing windows. Back in on Wednesday, still to do: engine check, polish topsides, mark anchor chain, complete repair to taffrail capping, tidy up the inside which is a complete mess!

Jobs to complete afloat are continuing the staged rewire removing one of the previous owners flat twin and earth cables and replacing with stranded cables, and find something to put in the hole left by removing an old CRT television!

May be able to go sailing before the end of the month!

Excellent report. Are you available for other commissions?

Sadly no, after launching yesterday I had to return to the day job. :(

I did all that. Once.

Let's hope you get decent weather and enjoy the full fruits of your labour.
