Back in June I put Cheeky 'on the hard' for her annual bottom scrub and clean. She needed touching up, so I asked a few Shipwrights if they would be willing to repaint her..."Too cold right now!"..."You'll regret it at this time of year" were the comments...I stumbled across Max who said ok I'll give it a go....The guys at the yard then persuaded me to pick a new colour...Max, my painter is a meticulous worker and to keep costs down I said I wanted to do most of the prep work....Well, I didn't think for a minute that it would be so tough.
Sanding and sanding and sanding
A big Job ahead, and this is about a week into it.
