We are hoping to be able to launch the skiff in May, to be on the water in plenty of time for our inaugural regatta in June. BUT:

the painting started on 25 February, with the help of the Guides, but has been very slow since then because of the cold weather, often taking a week between coats to dry instead of the 16 hours on the tin (not helped by part of the roof blowing off the shed in the gales!)

We would love some more help on a Wednesday and Sunday afternoon, either or both. Wear old clothes; brushes etc provided. No previous experience required! The next task is to put two more coats of white undercoat on the interior, and one more on the exterior of the hull, before the topcoat. A bit of sanding with fine sandpaper and a rub down beforehand with turps is needed.

Meet in the big red shed at Oban Seil Farm at 1400. See the skiff website (above) for photos of progress so far ...

Thanks in anticipation

This week's mid-week painting session is not on Wednesday, as advertised, but at 1900 tomorrow, Tuesday - sorry! The first coat of topcoat is going on the hull.
