I had intended to do work around the house today, but I wound up at the ship instead.
As I mentioned in my last post, I got a package in the mail yesterday:
It contained a much-needed can of le Tonkinois*:
I usually apply new coats of varnish before the previous work becomes too worn. Due to lack of time, I let things go a bit too long. Thus, I had to do more work on the rail than usual.
Yay for electricity and a random-orbit sander:
After a few hours of work, it looked much better:
Speaking of looking better, here is part of a yard that was coated with primer yesterday by volunteers:
Interesting ship of the day, Condock IV (a dockship):
I wanted to get more/better photos of her. However, she departed earlier than expected (while I was busy varnishing). So, no luck there. 😦
Maersk Matsuyama…something’s not quite right:
On the ship again tomorrow to apply another coat of varnish, then later on in the evening for the New Year’s fireworks.
*I noticed a slight change to the design on the can. It used to say “Homologué par la Marine Nationale” on the hull of the ship at the bottom right.
