Safety one is having a significant facelift. The engine has been serviced and she’s out of the water and in Bewitched's tent at the moment. As the Safety Boat Training on Saturday has been postponed and only one boat is required for the Spring Regatta there is sufficient time to give her a good scrub up!
She has been given a thorough pressure wash inside and out, including the two lockers. False floors for these have been made and painted and they are ready to fit.
A crack was found in the join between the floor and side starboard forward and an epoxy repair has been made on it.
All the the red bits, including the lockers, have been sanded ready for painting as have the grey parts inside the Hull.
Before next weekend, the floor will be painted in grey deck paint, the inside of the Hull in grey bilge paint and the red repainted. The gel coat damage to the Hull will be repaired, ready for it to be descaled, machine buffed and polished. A donation of antifouling has kindly been made to our favourite charity!
If anyone would like to help next Monday 16th Tuesday 17th Wednesday 18th or Thursday 19th May, there will be plenty to do! Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday 14th May from 9:30am until around 3pm
Regrettably, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to postpone the training - new date TBC
