Additional glassing done around transom and load bearing points, also hypalon patches bonded to deck. Ready for non slip flowcoat tomorrow!
Just got to work out best way to apply flowcoat to achieve the stippled effect on angled sides, foredeck and transom

Flowcoat now done on deck and started flowcoat at the stern, then got sidetracked by lifeboat shout. The rest will have to wait til next weekend, then she can start going back together again!

The last renovation I done, I used carborundum. Grit which had excellent non slip values but was also good at tearing bare skin to shreds.
I use kiln dried sand on the roof of narrowboats in coach enamel paint works well put on with a flour shacker never used flow coat thought .

The carborundum idea is good, but maybe too effective?

There must be different grades of carborundum but the stuff I used previously was way too course.
Need to get her out somewhere new once she is done, thinking of coming down the Solent some time soon.
