Bones Blacking I
Finally the day came for the boat to come out of the water for works.
After a good pressure wash (which blew a hole in the bow) I went around with a scraper taking off the loose paint. After that I used the 9inch angle grinder with a huge wire brush on it to clean the steel up. The 9inch is rather heavy so I held it up using my knee (which I rested on an old paint tin) and various other interesting positions.
With the steel all prepared (and the hole in the bow welded up) it was time to wait for the surveyor to arrive to tell me whether the hull needed any extra work.
