Winches and Mead

(Title courtesy of the fabulous Alestorm)

The anchor winch has long been looking a bit sorry for itself, and so that it doesn't actually start rusting away we decided to rust bust and paint it. We got a wire brush attachment for the angle grinder (which is BRILLIANT, it just eats rust and cleans the metal up really quickly) and got to work cleaning off the rust. (i make no apologies for the stylish eyewear, as a photographer the last thing you want is a flying shard of metal in your eye).

Then it was time for the fun bit. Lorna got busy with the hammerite and started painting the various sections. There's a long way to go yet, but it's already looking much better and it's going to look great.
