So now, one might think, all will be well from this point on. But no. No sooner had Ian started the power washing of the hull when the oil seal goes on the pressure washer and Dan has to head off to source another pressure washer. 50 minutes later he returns considerably poorer because of it and finally Ian gets underway. Almost finished and the new washer stops! Now what!!! But it was nothing more than running out of petrol. So now we are doing catch up. The first lot of Bitumen has gone on the water line and our only saving grace for the delay is the weather. We couldn't have wished for better as not only did the hull dry out very quickly, but also the bitumen. Might be a late night for us though as we only have four days on the dock and three coats of blacking to get on.
