More Lottie than Log

With launching due on April 16, work has been focussed more on Lottie than on the Log.  This so far mostly means working below the waterline, turning this (before) to this (after):

All the steel below the water line has been wire brushed back to steel/rust, coated with Fertan rust converter and is now in process of getting 5 coats of Primocon.  The ballast keel also been similarly treated (though not stripped right back to bare metal).

In the forecabin, ceiling boards have been shaped (6mm WBP ply) to line under the foredeck with vinyl.  The old locker floors have been offered up and reduced in size ready for new teak faced underdeck locker fronts to be made.
