The Robert Allan got a fresh coat of white paint on the interior and blue on the sheer plank last Saturday.  Really brightens her up!


We also raised a glass of rum in honour of the birthday of Joost (Maritime Museum Executive Director, far left) – he is a great supporter of our club, and it was nice to give him some recognition!


First coat of varnish

After a pretty quiet summer in the shop, we finally finished the last bit of sanding and the first coat of varnish on our Robert Allan refurbishment.

With the onset of the rainy season, and the annoying habit of the otters using our boat covers as trampolines, our boats were getting pret-ty full!  Thank goodness we’ve got a good pump to work with.
