Over the years the engine room and fiddly deck (the space above the engine room, shown in the picture) have been getting progressively more filthy.
It really needs to be cleaned up, and painted, for a couple of reasons:
- The rust needs attending to anyway, to get a grip
- It makes the space a much cheerier place to work in
- Cleaning gives me a chance to find any problems
- The accumulated oil and dirt on deck is unsafe
Readers who have been on Lady Jane before now will recognise just how clean, and clear, the fiddly deck space now looks.
Finally the rusty patches inside are being disappeared.
