Scuppers free

Scuppers freeI finally got to spend a bit of time heating the hinges on the two seized scuppers to burn off the rust and paint.

It was quite a pleasure to sit there a while in the warm sunlight, with the oxy-propane torch doing the work for me. The black marks are the evidence of my attentions.

Almost magically, the scuppers are now swinging freely.

A bit of cleaning up and a lick of paint, after greasing the hinges, will mean the scuppers will be as good as new.

More importantly, now the hot work is done here, work on painting the outside can start on this section.
