Sprucing up Rodney Bey

Spent a couple of days helping to repaint Rodney Bey – Exmouth Gig Club’s rowing boat. She had been stripped down to the wood over the winter and now needed to be repainted in advance of the coming season which starts with the World Pilot Gig Championships on the Isles of Scilly in May.
