Minim gets a make-over

Fresh from her Nationals winning performance, I decided it was time for Minim to get some long overdue TLC. First off, all the paint needs stripping. I'm tired just thinking about it. Then she will need sanding, filling and priming.

Then she'll be flipped over and the decks are coming off! All the little pins are lifting, and the gulwale has split away from the deck edge. And I can lose some weight from her.

Weighed her last night - 54 KG on our bathroom scales. The aim is to get her below the 50 KG when weighed more accurately - I suspect she is more than 54kg in reality.

The major question is, should I paint her black again, or something different?
