I am in danger of becoming a deck bore. But it is looking pretty darn lovely. Here is a view across the patched hatch. It also shows the different qualities of the deck – the new wood, the aged wood, and the really dodgy paint covered bit.
Parts of the deck have been lightly sanded to check on the quality of the wood underneath and to see how it will come up when finished. It still needs a bit of elbow grease but the signs are all good and it looks like it won’t look too different to the new section.
