I started the day buy sweeping off the excess grit. This needed to go into the oven to dry out ready for the starboard side to be gritted.
This is how it looked before painting.
After I masked up and gritted the starboard this had given time for the damp of the day to burn off so I could paint the port side.
This really drunk some paint I can tell you. Hopefully all this gritting will ensure I never slip off the gunwales. Fingers crossed hey?
