A wanted a break in the weather this week as I am having the Pram Hood altered to have the helm window and the large back window made to zip out.
While its gone I have taken the opportunity to grit the back end of the roof. This involved a good rub down with 40grit DA then masking up.
Then a very thick coat of floor paint followed by a liberal sprinkling of grit. There is 16.5Kg on there believe it or not. I wanted a course grit and strangely I found exactly what I was looking for in a pet shop. Crushed Oyster Shells!!! Nice and course, and only 95p for 1.5kg. Al last something cheap for a boat.
I expect to recover at least 10kg with only 5-6 kg stuck to the paint
It looks a bit hit and miss now but when the masking is removed and the excess is removed it should look nice and neat.
I have also prepared the gunwales ready for gritting and I've dried out the water tank ready for its final coating.
