Painting – fifty buckets of grey

 Finally slapping some paint on the old girl. A supremely difficult task given the angles, the structure built inside the bilge, and the sheer number of rivets to paint. The paint itself smells noxious and sticky and to get from section to section you have to climb over or through hurdle height structures. Tough stuff. 
That said the transformation is incredible. From rust bucket to sleek submarine…

From this…

To this…   

 All while wearing very glamorous breathing masks!  It wasn’t all hard graft. We managed to find time to fit in some swimming, dinner and a sunset. 😊
