on hull & deck
The original hatch has been valiant for 46 years. But it is not up-to-date, does not close well and does not let any light into the ship. The new hatch is from LEWMAR and
she is round. I sawed a 24 cm thick boat plywood board to the dimensions 60 x 60 cm. … More next weekt. ...
The hatch base is already primed with 2K primer and will later be painted together with the deck. The installation can only be done when the deck has been reworked.
Before the deck can be sanded in the coming weeks, everything has to be removed bit by bit, which does not hinder the grinding and painting work.
Preparatory work outdoors.
Today I sanded the paint with my orbital sander to the test. There are a total of 5 layers of paint appeared.
Since the hull and the deck will be sandblasted in the coming week, everything that disturbs must be dismantled.
The 50-year-old rub rail is ramshackle and I simply flexed off all the screw heads and just pulled off the old molding. There was a lot of dirt behind the bar.
Seit gestern wird die Leisure gesandstrahlt und die Aussenarbeiten am Schiff nehmen nun die meiste Zeit ein. Das Schiff wird dann auch äußerlich wieder ganz frisch aussehen.
Unfortunately, I am currently unable to enter the heated shipyard as planned to begin the "stern extension" project. Therefore, the project is delayed a bit. Instead, the interior work in the salon continues.
