Hope you don't go too far. It reminds my of boats that have not been in drydock for repairs for a long time.


Not to much rust will be seen ,i just spray the whole boat so when i start chipping i know i have a rust color beneath it.

I take it you are familiar with the hairspray and salt chipping technique ?

No.
But I just watched a YouTube demo. Interesting technique.

Devastated we will never see the build finished but equally can't wait to see what happens with the S boats.

Plus one. Still, I can't begrudge someone accepting an offer they couldn't refuse. We are never short of good stuff coming from Maarten so it won't be long before we see more.

The person that bought it contacted me (last week) if I wanted to buy him back,
Because of sickness he could no longer work on it :(

so it is back and who knows we will start again in the future .

The circumstances might not be the best but from a purely selfish point of view I'm pleased to see this one return.
