No, I’ve not been on one of those action holidays! I’m in the process of removing the antifouling paint from the hull of the boat my husband and I are restoring. It’s a 1970s Albin Vega. The paint used in the 1970s was toxic, hence the overalls mask and goggles.
It’s either this, or I become a yachting widow. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Actually, I enjoy doing this. I will enjoy it even better when I’m sunbathing on the coach roof with a gin and tonic or swimming in the Caribbean off the swimming ladder. Not that we have a swimming ladder yet.
I’ve fused two photos to get the one above. The background is a shot of the beautiful distressing of the hull. Everything is art!
