2nd July 2016 – The freshly welded parts were painted, also the parts where the primer was damaged. I cleaned the engine room, as far as possible, and painted the new metal on the inside. The problem with this engine room is the heat. It is so hot inside, you can only stay there for 15 minutes before having to take a break.
I emptied the bilges and hovered the dust away. It was a clean engine room in January and since the removal of the old wheelhouse in March, it became a mess. Rain, leaves, metal, etc… all entered the engine room. A next step will be to clean and check the engine.
