More scraping and painting

After a couple of weekends away doing other things, we're back in the bottom of the boat scraping off the old crud applied years ago by various owners.

We are trying a rust converter which is used in Locomotive preservation, hopefully it will stop the corrosion getting any worse and also create a barrier between the new paint and the bare metal. It's 70 quid a gallon so I hope it works.

Looking at the picture above you can see the white, which is the newly applied and the black/brownish that has reacted with the rust and created a sort of resin type coating.
