Hi,
Painting the deck is now also nearly finished. The SB bench side in the cockpit still needs to be painted but that was not possible yesterday because it is so narrow between the 2 benches that I would have touched the PS already painted side with my fat behind.

Here the view from the bow:

Funny the view from the transom looks as if the rudder pintles are not mounted in the midlle of it, but nothing to worry the photographer was not standing in the middle or the boat is not completely level on the 2 carpeted supports at station A and D

Here the view from the transom:

And here I managed also a funny one and that is just sunlight shining in through the window.

I can also see on this picture that I still need to give the washboards a glossy white Tiger paint because the glossy white ( RAL 31 ) I painted them last year was from another manufacturer and the hatch roof also gets another coat. It is not easy for a colour blind and now also snow blind old toppy after having seen to much white paint for hours.

All in all it is not perfect but I am happy with the outcome. Tomorrow I have the annual check up at my optician and the older I become the less I need the glasses for close up viewing. This lets me see any flaw left by tipping with the brush clearly. But then I walk away 4 foot and I see my nicely painted effort of the last 5 years.

Greetings from Karl
