Ok Guys get the point should have checked before posting. You must have so much time on your hands doing nothing.
Cheers Al

Hi guys,

Sorry for the very late update! Work and other interests have taken up a lot of my time and the lack of nice weather hasn't exactly given me the motivation to get the work done on my Enterprise.

But after a spurt of motivation, I have finally had a good week of work and progress has been made!

After giving it a good sand, lots of filler and another sanding, I finally got 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of undercoat on her:

It was a hard choice beween Bondi blue and squall blue but in the end i went for Bondi blue. This is how she stands today:

Tomorrow I will start with the varnishing, i plan on getting her finished and put back together ready for me to take her down to west Wales Thursday night and weather permitting, have a good weekend of sailing! :) I think I have my work cut out! :D

Dan.

Just a few photos from last night, sailing at Llandegfedd reservoir. An almost windless evening but very enjoyable.

So today I started some more work on Dawn Breeze, stripping the inside to be revarnished. I was in two minds about doing it but decided its something that needs doing so let's get on and do it!

I am looking forward to seeing her with a fresh coat of varnish inside.Image

I am getting there slowly with the stripping/sanding.

I have also decided to fit some extra benches to make things more comfortable for my girlfriend. :P
