La Boudoir

Work on the Good Ship Bones (GSB) continues apace. The entire bedroom, except the bathroom bulkhead has been Vactaned (rust treated). This done it was necessary to paint over the whole shebang. Using up old pots of paint the room in now mostly blood red. This is a mixture of Crown gel paint, Hammerite, and rather than open a whole new tin of something else red, some ahalf empty International Mid Blue to finish. The floor is ordered and will arrive tomorrow. I can't get it in the boat until I have cut it. With my luck it will be pouring down with rain. Happy Days!

Yesterday our tame engineer built and welded in the brackets which will allow the bed to pivot upwards. Very smart job. Pictures will be available later.
