Topside polishing

Topside polishing

​Just spent a freezing cold day in the marina boatyard, cleaning and polishing Brighton Belle's topsides. I'd taken over from Paul who'd arrived much earlier than me, and done some great work on the port forward section. It was about 5

I'm still trying to work out why Steve's photo is at a 45° angle. I'm currently opting for answer c). ;-)

Sunday 22 November. ​A much nicer day, with glorious bright sunshine. I even got warm enough to remove the two coats I'd set out in. David W was the early bird this morning, busy replacing panels in the nav station and aft cabin. New member Mike turned up soon after, and set to work cleaning the coachroof and cockpit.

I took the buffing hood for the electric polisher home today for a wash'n'dry, as it was getting clogged with polish. I suspect we'll need to do this every few days, or maybe invest in some more hoods. Once the topsides are cleaned and polished, the next job is taping off and painting the boot top with antifoul.
