... and somehow slowly, slowly Minim got done.
I'll start the photo process again now:
Hull printed, undercoated and painted bright red, using Precision marine paints from Pacer Marine.
Nice paint. Didn't know what to expect. She was then left for a month while we were busy doing other things, which gave it plenty of time to harden. All but the top coat done with rollers, top coat brushed. Not the best finish, but that is down to my limited skills than a problem with the paint.
