Steel priming

Steel primingMy deck is a real mess at the moment.

The offcuts from the steelwork at the stern has prompted me to also take care of some of the other new(ish) steel I have on board.

I also see that some of the other plate I have on board will need another coat of primer soon.

Experience has taught me that slapping primer onto steel early on helps keep the steel in pristine condition.

As I well know, the better the condition the steel is in, the easier it is to cut and weld.
