Debdale Update 1

On a visit to the boat yard today we were shown into the grit blasting shed to see the work in progress. The top sides are protected by a tent type structure, which is then firmly taped to the hull sides. Various bits have been removed to facilitate the blasting, including the four sacrificial anodes, the bow thruster grill and the weed hatch plate. 



We also visited the village of Uppingham, and spent a few hours looking around the numerous antique shops. We found a shop specialising in antique rugs, and we have been on the look out for a (new) rug for the boat.


Next update will be Friday, by which time the zinc coating will have been done and the two pack resin finish, will be in the process of being applied.
