It really was a terrible spring for painting! It rained relentlessly for weeks and then the sun would poke out its head for far too short a time. Eventually we managed to paint the entire exterior of vessel (from the top of the mast to the base of the keel) but it was not without ample use of tarps and some sleepless nights hoping of a break in the weather before our early season Natural History tours with Bill Merilees. When the sun finally did shine it was ironically often too hot! and the paint was setting up too quickly. But with the entire family out with rollers and brushes we succeeded, with only the skipper seeming to have acquired the extra grey hairs...
