Painting and re-roping Daisy G
I've started back on the paint work over the weekend. All of the external scrapes are filled and smoothed and I have painted them with grey under coat. I am going to over paint the whole hull then, it really needs it this year. Then got into cockpit and I have sanded and put a first coat on all the vertical sides to the cockpit, but it will need a second if not third. Also refitted the jib furling line and the kicking strap. So bits starting to go back on. It is only about seven weeks until launch date, which is not all that much working time. But the weather at the moment really doesn't seem springlike at all.
