Well - The paint stripper and paint has arrived.

Featured Posts

Now to get motivated and hope for a couple of weeks of Dry, warm weather and no direct sunshine.

 

Its 'bloomin' expensive stuff (over £2k) so I don't want it blistering or going 'wrong'

I've hired stripper for much less.

 

What's getting stripped?

Deck & Topsides on the cruiser. (Everything inside the toe boards)

4 x 10kg cans of Peelaway (takes of up to 18 coats at a time and OK for use on GRP

Wow! That looks good, you did a really fast job there, stripped and repainted in one day.

 

Aside, was it your catamaran I saw in the Philippines of the west side of Negros?

Well spotted - you know your stuff.

Yes - thought to be late 1800's. but the stand could be post WW2

 

Had to pull the curtains in the hall as the Sun was streaming thru and the paint tins getting a bit warm. Curtain tie-backs covering the horses head.
