This fireball was in for some hull damage to be repaired,bottom respray,and re-varnish of the decks…

This gp had a problem with paint not sticking to the hull,i stripped all the paint off, re-sealed the wood,and primed,filled,sanded etc to get a finish as good as new…the colour was the owners choice!!
This is a typical respray on a squib,i cant remember how many times ive done this! The photos show the boat partially rubbed down,fully rubbed down,and the finished job,the owner was doing below the waterline himself.
This would be a fairly typical job i would be asked to do…i travelled to london/derry carried out about 35 gelcoat repairs to this yacht,and finished off by burnishing,waxing,and polishing the hull. I stayed up there 3 days.
I was asked to repaint the hull and deck of this somewhat run down r23 > Additional work was fitting new windows,and tidying up poorly applied filler that someone else had put on below the waterline.
I was commisioned to spraypaint the superstructure of a classic lifeboat.The structure is aluminium,the owner had already had the area soda blasted,i applied 6 coats of epoxy primer,then 4 top coats of 2 pack polyurethane.
