The hull until recently had lived  under my bench awaiting further develpoments so to speak....I had allready built the superstructure and fitted the deck around xmas time the year before last...Yes I do work slowly.


The hull and superstructure were taken into work to be Primered up with 2k primer simply as I use it every day and we allways throw some way so it would have been rude not to use it up !!


The hull came home in Primer and was overcoated with Satin black firstly then The red oxide antifouling was then applied the next evening.

Looks a cracker Dave. I think this is the first time I've seen one of your builds.
