The very welcome first day of spring

With improving weather we can expect operations to begin moving outside and we ought to be able to start leaving the big door on the Richmond Boatbuilders open more often.

Daisy is getting her new hull colour here.

She came in white but, the longer we looked at the pictures in Wooden Boat Magazine the more we thought blue, as her original designers suggested, was the way to go.

Here I'm inspecting the application of the first coat and lamenting the quality of the underlying preparation. It looked so perfect before the shiny paint started going on.
