Creative packaging

Today the first two coats of primer will be (hopefully) sprayed on. In order to protect the rest of the boat we had to spread a layer of plastic all around the toe-rail and up to the life lines. Weirdly enough, there’s never enough proper scaffolding in a boatyard, instead we have to pile up differently sized blocks of wood put planks on top and hope for the best while balancing up there in 2 or even 4 m height…
We used up quite some plastic foil, masking tape and nerves with one of us standing on rickety make-shift scaffolding and the other one leaning over the railing and fixing straps of masking tape on the wildly fluttering foil (yep, of course there was a stiff breeze blowing). Keep your fingers crossed that it won’t rain on the primer!!
