Another trip to check out the painting today – the second coat of undercoat is on and dry and the first of the top coats should be going on this afternoon. I have photos but they don’t look any different to the last ones, so I haven’t bothered to put them on. The second top coat will probably go on tomorrow unless the first doesn’t dry enough tonight to be sanded down. Then a third coat if the painter thinks it necessary. We should have the boat back by the middle of next week. Then we will have to set to and clean up the rest of the paintwork, which is looking pretty mucky against the new paint.
