We were back at Rose Narrowboats yesterday to see the progress that Paul (the painter, not me) had made with repainting our narrowboat.
Paul had finished the two layers of primer and applied the first undercoat which is grey, and was busy sanding it down. The second undercoat will be blue.
The chimney collar has been removed, exposing a little rust which has been dealt with, and the holes in the centre of the roof where the television aerial used to be have been welded up.
The large smooth area to the right is where the name panel will be.
The red undercoat on the lower tunnel band makes a surprising difference to the appearance.
More red undercoat at the bows makes it look a little nearer finished.
I’ll be back on Friday when I’m expecting to see a big change as the second coat of undercoat will be blue and that will be very different.
