Just in the nick of time, as I was looking forward to a long slog, Barrie arrived, whistled round with the masking tape and between us we had a coat of primer on Hoi Larntan’s interior before lunch. Well thinned, multi-million £ epoxy high-build primer – luckily a beautiful day and we had the barn doors open to dispel the solvents. Weather permitting, continue the process tomorrow.
Later, spied on the team (four oars plus Elaine as cox), practising in Roy’s boat at Blakeney in the sunshine. Sadly a very small tide – ashamed to say I didn’t stay to see if they got back OK?
