Yarwood was moved into the paintshop a week last Monday. All of the first week was spent in cleaning and preparing the shell for painting on on Monday this week the first paint was applied. A coat of buff coloured primer was sprayed on the inside of the boat, see below.
The primers waiting to be applied - best part of £900's worth - ouch!
Looking into the hold through the deck hatch/lid; grey primer throughout
Applying the 'zinc' based primed, the first of three coats. This paint is so thick it has to be pumped to the spray gun and when dry it is very hard.
