Half a Job

As Shamrock is due to be floated off on the 28th, it's hull painting time again. Using paint rollers this year to try and speed up the process. All went well until the bitumen paint reacted with the roller material causing them to start disintegrating. We still managed to get half the hull done despite the rain, sleet and rollers. The sun decided to make an appearance, after we finished!

In the boat shed, the center sections of the bulwarks are looking very smart with a new paint job. Once there are fitted we will need to get the remaining sections painted to match.

On the river, Shaune and Peter were taking advantage of the spring tides low water to check the moorings.
