Today I had an extra labourer – my uncle came by and gave me a hand for the day. We started on the tender first and removed the remainder of the paint on the exterior of the hull that I wanted to remove. Using the Speed heater with 2 people is much fast than working with it on your own – within an hour and a half we had this paint off and the mess cleaned up.
We switched to ANZAC, as this is what he wanted to work on. Sanding was the order of the day. a bit of a fail with the sander so we continued the old fashion way with block and sand paper – this worked well – the speed heater had done a great job removing the paint earlier, so what was left was just a thin film.
Was too busy sanding to stop and take pictures so will post some shortly.
