Bones Blacking III

When I heard that someone hired a scrabbler to get their boat back to bare metal before blacking it, I wondered whether I would have liked to do the same.  I rather liked the idea of a nice smooth finish, but I stuck to my original mantra of not removing that which is already stuck firmly.  I didn't hire a scrabbler which turned out to be a good thing.  It turns out the red lead oxide is probably why the boat is in such good condition.
The surveyor gave the boat a good thumbs up and I was delighted that extra work wasn’t needed.
Following the good news it was time to get on with the blacking.
