Nose job

One of the distinguishing features of Betty was the row of three welded on patches at the bow. These might have been welded on to cover some sort of damage and, after some years, were looking a bit unsightly.

First one was cut out, then the second, and now all three have been removed to be replaced with new inserts. This gives a much smoother line and means that when it’s all painted it will look fantastic.

After considerable microdermoabrasion, or shot blasting, this is the nautical equivalent of a nose job.

The arial photos took some ingenuity and even more acrobatics to take (not mine I hasten to add!).
