I've got rollers and brushes as well as a decent scraper from Amazon and a full bottle of Fertan ( rust convertor)
Be in the dock on Thursday 7th October drained and jet washed by 11am so the surveyor can do his job. Then as the boat dries I'll scrape any hard loose stuff off the jet washer has missed then Fertan the rusty bits.
Friday first coat of blacking (unless work is needed on the hull but that'll be subject to staff availability)
Saturday let the blacking cure fully may polish the upper sides roof etc
Sunday second coat of blacking prep tunnel bands
Monday let the blacking further cure and hopefully do the tunnel bands plus and other little bits and bobs
Tuesday 9am we are back out and subject to other personal stuff may well start the return trip. I'd like to go up through the tunnel back to our Shroppie mooring but may well be single handing and that way will take longer so in all probability I'll got clockwise back to the mooring.
But before that more power added to the boat.....
