Painting whilst the suns shines

Escaped to the boat for 4 days.  Met office forecast was for good, dry weather. So let’s rip with the sandpaper, wire brush and paints! I bought a 2.5 litre of special narrowboat enamel paint (£48) and so wanted to attack the odd rust spots before the winter. The whole stern area needed doing plus odd roof spots and a lot of the handrail.  Also inside the cratch, the port side wall was marked by lots of little pits … not sure what caused this (eh, Barry?) but they’re history now!  It is good paint.  Should last.  Here’s some before & after pix:

and some after ones:

you can just see poor Toby – in the wars again – sliced his paw – all sorted now plus a big red bandage!
