The Sailing Season Approaches
Spring sunshine, a fresh light breeze, the Sea is calling us again and our little boats seem to smile in the Sun as their covers come off and they get some tender loving care.
It's time to get all our little boats ready and shipshape for this year's Sailing Season!
First job on the list; Peewit our PBO Pup dinghy which Skipper built himself 6 years ago, is in need of a new coat of varnish on her gunwale (upper edge of the boat's side)
An afternoon was spent in the garden scraping off the loose cracked coat and sanding and preparing for the varnish.
She is now indoors drying with several layers of varnish being applied over this week and will very soon be ready to rig up and get down to the water.
