Much of the MARY is now shining with new paint, as
you can see in the photo above.
The race is now on to coat the main decks so that snow is not sitting on decks that have been prepped for paint.
We are blessed with at least another 10 days of warm-enough weather, and it would be great if you could come help put coatings on some key spaces.
You can come whenever suits you.
The following three paint jobs sound big, but it's fast work since paint is rolled or squeeged as in the photo above. Peter Rothenberg and I did the starboard half of the ullage trunk in 2 hours, after the cutting in was done.
- Paint the other (port) half of the ullage trunk
- Prime both lower decks along the ullage trunk
- Paint both those lower decks along the ullage trunk
More fastidious work
- Put some more coats of varnish on the bridge deck rail (sand and varnish)
This teak rail needs more coats of varnish.
- Below, the job is sanding around protrusions and then painting the small space in between the windows on the aft end of wheelhouse near where Richard Evans has been restoring the two windows. This is work on secure scaffolding, not a ladder!
Thanks for whatever you can do!
