Can t think of any more but there probably is more. The hull sprayed in the past is perfect
The superstructure sprayed in the past is not, but a 6k quote put me off. Perhaps in a year or too

The whole affair has been quite stressful and a recent problem with one of the engines
Nearly pushed me to sell the bloody thing, but perhaps when Icheer up and summer comes it will all be worthwhile.
