Back to Black

It took all day but we finished the first coat of blacking. This coat was brushed on to get into all the nooks and crannies but the next two will be rolled. Why did we want such a long boat?

We did spot something interesting on the hull that we’d not seen before though. A numeral 3 scored into the hull just below the first guard iron roughly where the original cabin would have finished. We’re mystified as to what it was for. Gauging? Makers mark? Hull identification?
