Luckily the hard graft is now done just the antifoul left to do it should be back in the water Friday evening, repainting that hull was hard work in the time scale that I had given myself, i got started on it the week of the 1st of June and got rained off by the Friday got back to it the following Sunday managed to get 5 coats of top coat on then finished it off Saturday with flatting it back first with 500 grit then 2000 grit then compound and polish, then on Sunday whipped round the woodwork to tidy it up.
I used nearly 5lts of 2 pack undercoat and nearly 5lts of 2 pack top coat (marine grade paint supplied by Whitham oil and paints of Lincoln but from thier place at Lowerstoft)
