The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

First the answer to the quiz;; are you sitting down?   FIVE ! ! yes they were $NZ 4 each by golly $200 for 50! !

Anyway no use blinking now.

Today I severly wire brushed the jocky prop shaft to clear all the rust flakes.Used angle grinder with this brillo pad stuff-rust dust everywhere, then 2 coats of "Tergosol" rust converter,which is amazing stuff.All ends up a hard black finish which is similar to and acts like a primer. Then 2 coats of 'Hammerite" paint-silver hammer glaze.
