Paintwork | Protective Measures

With the boat right side up once more, I was keen to start work on finishing the topsides.

However, there was one significant issue to resolve urgently - a vast expanse of lovely paintwork at risk of being damaged. Unintentionally, of course. But there was no doubt that it would happen. None whatsoever.

So I wrapped the paintwork in protective sheeting.

First a soft waterproof membrane next to the hull, like this.

Then a tough, hard layer of protective floor covering over that. This is the transom.

And this is the view from the starboard side.

That should lessen the chances of scratches and dings!
