Mr Scan man,??, It's got a good ring to it 'TCC', could even be a song title, first verse, "hey Mr Scaaaann Man, do a scan for me, am all out to sea" ( Hum it to an old 'Byrds' tune, Mr Tamborine man!!??).........Anyway thanks for doing that, certainly shows the 'skirting' for sure!, and more than likely, the colour is a 'dark grey', but for me, black it is!!
My trips aboard ships are few, but I can remember on trips 'Doon the Watter' in the old paddle steamers, ie..'The Waverly'. Later on in life trips accross to Europe, and yes, that line was always there, usually green, but you don't know why (should've asked me dad, he was in the Royal Navy during WW2, bit late now mind you!!) Swabbing the decks (harr) sounds like a good and logical reason, I just can't think of any myself, I'm sure someone out there must know????.
Lastly, did a bit more last night, the 'pen' works fine on the straight bits, bit more difficult in the curved sections, I keep making the line too wide!, so I have to remove it, re-spray, then do it again, I think I should be wearing my 'head magnifiers', I'll give that a go next time!!...."OOPS!!"... I forgot to look at the paint number on the lid, but I'll do it tonight ...for sure! Dave.
