Another batch of photos arrived from Friesland overnight, showing some details of the continuing painting. Here we see the stem looking forward from the front of the foredeck. The insides of the bulwarks are now painted and drying, waiting for the masking for the application of the nonskid coats to the decks.
Turning around and looking aft, we see the tabernacle, spud leg caisson and propane boxes have been painted black to match the gunwale tops.
Aft in the cockpit, there is a nice view down through the after engine room hatch at the generator. Seen around the periphery of the hatch is the rich ivory paint drying and awaiting masking for the nonskid application.
Here is the view forward over the roef. Soon this will become a familiar sight to us as we wend our way slowly southward through the canals of the Netherlands, Belgium and France.
