On 11th March Kevin, Paul and Chris finished off the sanding of the woodwork and some final detail epoxy work was done. A conference was conducted by those present at which it was decided that due to various superficial imperfections in the wooden surfaces they should be painted. The colour Royal Blue was selected because it is the predominant colour on the club logo. Other areas identified as requiring attention are the centre board and the rudder. These will be painted white.
The next restoration event will be at 1000 hours on Saturday 14th March 2015 when it is hoped that painting can commence.
