Bruny Island - Day 3

Wednesday 15 January 2014

Although a fine day was forecast we woke to fine misty rain that put a stop to our painting plans. We had intended to paint the deck in the morning and go across the Channel to Woodbridge for papers in the afternoon. We decided to reverse the order of things and see if the weather cleared up enough for painting in the afternoon. About mid morning we headed across the Channel to Woodbridge and tied up on one of the Peppermint Bay Pub's moorings in the Bay. They have about 6 moorings in the Bay available for visiting boaties free of charge. After going ashore and walking up to the shop for papers we had coffees and friands at the Peppermint Bay Pub before returning to the boat.

On the way back across the Channel we passed a Tassal work boat towing a fish pen down the Channel to a new location.

We returned to Sykes Cove and as the weather had improved - now fine and sunny, we spent another afternoon on hands and knees repainting the deck of the boat. Not sure that my knees will ever recover. We start at the wheelhouse door and paint our way around the boat then when get back to the starting point it is time to retreat inside the wheelhouse for a cold refresher or two, while the paint dries. The deck paint is quick drying and can be walked on in a couple of hours.
