Nearly there

Paintwork finally touched up on the outside. I had to buy a 750ml can of Donegal Green and I only needed about a brush full. I am tempted, if time allows, to give her a complete new coat of green. It doesn't take that long if the  weather warms a bit. I always use rollers. The finish isn't perfect, but far better than I can acheive with a brush. The topsides are all masked up so I can paint a non-slip coat to the cabin top, foredeck and side decks, which do get slippery when wet. I will give another stain coat to all the bright woodwork and then possibly a final coat of ivory to the remaining white woodwork. I only have about two weekends left before we go on holiday and then it will be launch day.
