The painting of the freeboard is the biggest work we have done so far. The paint was old and the hull was uneven on some places. First thing we did was to clean the freeboard and then we started to sand it. The paint we used is a double coat from the Dutch mark De Ijssel.

Tada! After 3 layers of duble coat, RAN became grey. The double coat is a two component polyuerthane painting De Ijssel.
