Painting ballast

Got the grinder out today and wire brushed the ballast keel, then gave it
two coats of Aldi's finest metal paint. I wasn't too particular about it. I
just got rid of any loose stuff and painted it up, after all its not going to
rust away to nothing.
I also cut the bow knee out roughly to shape, I will finish that off at home
I then set about removing the skylight from Piskie, Liam is planing on having
an open well, working boat style, so his skylight will become obsolete and
I was planning on copying his so that worked out nicely. It seems in pretty
good shape, I made a start on stripping the paint when I got home, 2 of the
panes of glass need changing but it should do the trick nicely.
