All in a Weekend's Work

While Caxton is out of the water we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to black the hull and touch in the paintwork.  Leaving Barry and Dave play with welding guns and sheets of steel we have been doing the serious work of scrubbing done the hull with scrubbing brush and soapy water before set about Caxton's nether regions with a wire brush.

Dave allowed us access to his workshop over the weekend so on Saturday we got the first coat of blacking on and then on Sunday it was back again to get the second coat on.  Joe is going to repaint the tunnel bands at the stern today.
