Tending to Fenders

We had some traditional fenders made for Willow last year, but as they’re natural fibre we couldn’t attach them until they had been treated to prevent mould and moss growing on them.

This involves dunking them in creosote for a week then hanging them up to dry. We used a large “gorilla” tub as they didn’t fit so well in a dustbin. The first tipcat is now hanging up to drip into the tub and the second is soaking. The buttons will be next. All this is going on in the garage to avoid smells and spills on the boat!
