The Painting has Started

The heavy filling is done, the first sanding is done.

I've started the undercoating. The stuff is a high build 2 part epoxy undercoat. It's got some manner of solvent in it cause it stinks something nasty. As soon as I opened the tin, I went straight for the Organic Respirator. Spread a litre of that stuff out and you really don't want to be leaning over it and breathing it in.

My set of Charts for the local waters arrived. Now I've started buying sailing stuff, not building stuff.

That alone is a big step.

Although I am just getting ready to start the ribs on the strongback, I can relate to this post. I am very much looking forward to this project!
