Look at this ship, look at this lovely ship! I spent yesterday attacking her with a hair dryer. Well, actually a heat gun, but it works like a hair dryer, with low and high settings. If you turn it too high, bits of the hull start to smoulder; too low and you’ll never dry the timber where the iron keel meets the wood, and if you paint over it like that it’ll rot. So. Hair dryer. I’m not going to tell you all about Duyfken now, because I’m hoping this is the start of a beautiful friendship. But check her out here – she’s really special.
