Deck Repairs 10

Well, Deck now sealed, sanding and painting next, but Port tank to remove first and Tank space to repair.

All fittings now replaced on decks, (all except windlass). Long job of painting up Toe boards, Stanchions etc.

Well approximately 9 months after finishing deck repairs, got down to final sand and prime....ready for Undercoats.
