I’d heard on Friday that Lucy had been moved to the blasting area. She wasn’t going to be blown up, but she was going to have all of the red anti-foul blasted off, and the underside of the hull made good for the next stage of the process. It was planned to happen today, and I’m delighted to have received pictures from ace ‘on the spot’ reporter, Steve, to show how the team at Mylor Yacht Harbour got on.
The white spots are where the bilge keel was bolted though before the keel was added. Look carefully and you can make out where the keel box in the original moulding was, just by the propeller, and you can see that the rudder is made of timber. I’ll see if I can get a report from Henry tomorrow, and find out if they found anything nasty, or of this is entirely as expected.
