I've made a start on re-instating the galley roof.
Malcolm has been of great help in actually getting this task going, by scraping the rust off of the deck head. Not too pleasant a job, it has to be said.
The picture you can see is the deck head after a coating of Rustroy, which converts the rust and makes a good surface for subsequent layers of paint.
Next will be a few coats of bitumen paint, too keep the rust at bay a little more permanently.
This is really only a temporary fix, as the whole galley space needs to be refurbished properly at some point.
With the galley ceiling finally in place, I'll be pleased for the end of condensation dripping down the back of my neck.
