Top bit done

Top bit donePainting the white topcoat may be a cruise, but there's lots of it to be done.

Here you see the top section of the wheelhouse block has been completed.

Unfortunately the difference between the done and not done bits does not seem so stark in the picture, but from a distance the fresh white really shows up a treat.

There is a small section to complete topsides, on the starboard side, then there are the rails and the much larger bottom section to be done.

Although there is not that much of them, the rails will take quite some time to do as they are so fiddly.

One thing though, this white paint is best applied when it's not sunny and bright, else the glare is so bright that you can't tell where you have just painted.

Sunglasses help, of course, but you still need to step back to see the bits you've missed.
