Engine room deck

Engine room deckThere is always something to do, almost no matter what.

In the past, I had saved up engine room work for the winter. The problem is, in the winter it's just too cold to work down below with all that cold steel about (my excuse).

Here you see the continuation of a job Fred started some time ago, the cleaning and painting of the engine room deck.

A pretty thankless task at the best of times, though not to bad to be doing when it's not cold and too wet and/or windy up above to do anything there.

I can't complain about the weather so far this summer though.


  1. Tim,
    I agree about the engine room temp. I know my little engine room is always colder than the rest of the boat in the winter.

    Can you take up the plates a few at a time and deal with them in a warmer and more convenient setting?

    Scrubbing a plate or two with TSP might be a fun way to spend a Tuesday evening in your garage, rather than all the fuss and bother of going to the pub with your mates.

    The tough work has now been done - just a final clean, then get that paint down.
