4 very convenient lifting eyes in the boat, 1 even more convenient chain block and a team of willing polishers!! Looks lovely doesn't she... Few small gel repairs but more polish than "work".

Argh, tubes had to be deflated and tied in to fit through the doors.

Good spot on the glass gear, we share our workshop with boatbuilders - some distinct advantages to that (to be fair they say the same about sharing with marine sparks I hope).

I can't take any credit for the level of shine. None the less I've enjoyed watching the hard work and the results.

My work here is done.

"Ballistic" now has a new icom M323 plus 7" Raymarine plotter & AIS receiver.

I didn't think I'd be selling this so quickly but I'm picking up the next project on Thursday so the ballistic is up for sale.

Hopefully she won't sell too quickly as we've a trip to France planned end July.Click image for larger version

The whole positive marine team somewhat distracted from real work today cleaning my boat top to bottom...

I've entered her into a boat auction in Rams this weekend (with a reserve) so she needs to look her best. 6 months on and ed's / ribraf's tubes still gleam like new.
