Recovering after the paint job










Maggie:

Another weekend at Oxford Boatyard. This time I was covered with fine epoxy dust and gray bilge paint. Yes, that's right I said paint, as the major section of the bilge has now been painted. That means that we have successfully removed rot and replaced it with new wood, and epoxied and painted over 2/3 of the underground depths of Me Voy.  So now, only the engine room remains to be excavated,  rebuilt,  and repainted. I'm looking for that to be a terrible job, mostly because when I expect something to be easy it turns out to be very difficult indeed.
