Ian was merrily sanding away when suddenly both our fire alarms went off! Ian was completely oblivious to the high pitched chirping and I had to hammer on the bathroom door to grab his attention. Out he pops and the hall immediately fills with smoke. Turns out the disc is doing a great job in removing the adhesive but was also making it very hot. No danger of it catching fire thankfully, even though it was against a wooden wall. Became a real nuisance as the smoke escaped over the top and sides of the door and filled all of the boat. Even contemplated about going for another walk but instead opened all the doors, side hatch, (what little I could) Houdini as far as it would go 'cause we have a wooden double glazed unit over it, ( stops condensation dripping down Ian's neck first thing in the morning) all the windows and front cratch. Then as it got colder in FS, on went the extra layers and I sat it out freezing my soaks off while writing cards and wrapping presents!
|With working boat Bath next to us this is as far as the side hatch doors could open.|
|Meat mallet kept the Houdini open a crack|
|Difficult to see but room had a smoke haze about it.|
|Escaping out the windows|
|So worth all the effort. Walls smooth and ready for the vinyl|
It's all coming along quite nicely and I should have photos of the small partition wall removal tomorrow, as well as the possible placing of the shower tray. Now getting sooooo excited.
Forgot to show you the raffle prize we won at the Big band do. It is beautifully painted watering can and we would love to know if anyone has any ideas on who decorated it. The initial at the bottom looks like an H so if anyone can help I would be ever so grateful. Ta ever so.
