Vlog 126: Back to Black

This vlog picks up immediately where the last one left off, as I head from Hillmorton Wharf to Yelvertoft marina where I had the boat taken out of the water and into their shiny new boat shed for blacking. I let New Gary jetwash the boat clean but did the blacking myself, a coat each day for three days, after first scraping any loose crud off and applying a rust treatment to the waterline. After that, New Gary welded on some fresh anodes including flat ones on the centre of the boat sides.
