Hull Repairs 2

You keep reading about me Scraping more paint off the Hull, well it is a never ending Job.

I decided to strip back to the bare wood because as far as I know, it has never been done, and with layer upon layer of paint, it has become every unsound in places and would look very patchy if just over painted. Also I need to check all the timber's and repair where necessary.

Luckily the timbers are in a good general condition, apart from a little electrolysis near hull fittings and "bad" repairs previously undertaken.

I am trying to strip and prime in the same day, thus saving the timbers drying out anymore. When we have done that I am going to do the repairs as required, and do a second primer.
