Dry Dock Day 5

It's finished! Looks like a new boat again and it's not been that difficult. The worst job has to be the power washing/jet blasting to remove the old blacking and loose rust. The blacking itself is simple to apply and it really can be a DIY job, especially with the amount these dry docks charge to do it for you. The main reason it's taken 5 days has been the drying times involved with all the painting/touching up we've done plus the 48 hours drying time for the final coating of blacking before the boat could go back in the water.

We'll be floating again tomorrow morning so now need to start planning where to go next.

Watch this space!!!
