Stripping

Steadfast has gone into the paint dock at Glascote basin this week to be prepared for her new livery.    The first thing was to finalise what we required so that Chloe, (Ginge to her colleagues),  the paint-sprayer is clear  about what needs painting and what the colour scheme is going to be.  That done, it was time to strip everything off of the boat so it can rubbed down. The cratch board, well deck locker, the mushroom vents and the portholes have all been removed. The gas locker hatch and the rear slide are off as well.
Steadfast is going to be sprayed in two-pack paint but thorough preparation is key to getting a great finish.  We are also having a solar panel fitted which will make cruising even more leisurely next year.
