The painting jobs continue

The weather has improved a little and is now warmer during the day. I have been doing some more painting. The panel where the instruments and controls are positioned was a sort of grey colour and had suffered from continual traffic. It is now Buttermilk gloss. This has made it appear lighter, brighter and warmer. When the sun catches the paintwork it sends a lovely glow into the galley area.
Owing to pressure of work, it will be another couple of weeks before I can continue with any more painting.
The cratch deck paint should be hard by then. I did not realise how long it takes for paint to cure! So, all the cratch stuff is still in the cabin.
I will have one more visit before Easter, to tidy up, then we will re-attempt our fateful journey from between Christmas and New Year. By Easter we should not be troubled by thick ice - we hope!
Devizes here we come...
