This weekend 2nd & 3rd November…

A few days ago we thought that there might not be enough for people to get on with however, new developments mean there probably will be lots to do..

So what’s the plan….

Saturday 2nd Nov - So far Biffer, Whisper and Ian M

Arrive at Biffer’s for around 10am

Jobs to do (if Biff hasn’t done them already)

Clean all the nonslip paint and glue off the deck.

Clean the deck and wipe down with acetone and polish?

Nonslip gel/flowcoat mixed and applied.

Console machine polished, checked for and repairs and flowcoat applied, sand down and polish again.

Stainless steel polishing.

Loads of nuts and bolts that need sorting...

Sunday 3rd Nov - So far Biffer, Whisper and Neil Harvey

Arrive at Biffer’s for around 10am

Our donor boat should arrive Announcement to be made soon

Remove trailer and setup to our RIB

Check over engine and test.

Make a list of parts to sell.

Go home and post stuff on Ribnet

So we have about 2 places per day for anyone that wants to get their hands dirty and learn about the jobs posted above

Never going to get the right colour here, we'll get the rest of the deck with stipples and go over the whole deck with the right colour, if I get permission

You'll notice I said "we'll " instead of "I", I'm going out with the boss and then going to picture early evening, so I'm teaching rather than working this week end

We won't get Gell in time now, I'm thinking use a similar colour that we have got or can make up then use your Gell to finish
