Any colour as long as it’s buff (or black)?
Over the weekend volunteers have been busy, as ever, this time working inside the forecastle (focle) scraping off the loose paint from the ceiling and from around the inside of the bow after welding on the outside has damaged the paint.
As we do not have any colour photos of the inside of the ship, we do not know what colour she was painted inside during her working days. However, with these cleaning off and paint preparation works, we are getting a glimpse into the colours used previously.
Sanding down through the paint layers, it seems that the buff paint scheme was carried on inside the focle around the crew heads, wash rooms, paint and lamp room. If you know what colours should be used, we'd love to hear from you.
A brief reminder too about our social event next week on Wednesday 15th March in Bideford https://www.facebook.com/events/1257786754304619/
