Amazing What 3 Weeks in the Beauty Parlour Can Accomplish

It took some work…44 hours, in fact, on water blasters that mixed volcanic ash (imported from Norway) with water to create enough ‘grunt’ to cut through 14 years of anti-fouling paint to get back to the original oak timbers.

Thanks to all the vollies who put in hundreds of hours to get Duyfken looking "speckie" again.
