Painting committee


This boat appeared at the marina next to Lady Jane. Painting CommitteeShe was a lovely motor cruiser, excellently finished.

As the tide went out, the owner, at least I presume it was the owner, cleaned the hull below the waterline using a jet wash, then proceeded to paint the hull with anti-foul.

It was quite a lengthy process and what made it amusing for me was the committee you can see on the right of the picture which had assembled to stand around and watch, and occasionally give advice. Helpful, well meaning advice I'm sure.

As the tide was coming back in I had a brief word with the guy, he looked so pleased to be finished in time.
