From Graham Rankin:
'Today saw the final topcoats applied to the hull and doesn't she look smart. After the paint had gone off sufficiently we removed her paper skirt carefully, the clear sheer strake looks great against the off white hull. Friday will see a clear coat applied over the outside of the hull and the brass keel band fitted. If all goes well, we will enlist the help of some strong Monday nighters to turn her over and then the last few tasks can be done to the inside of the hull.'
