The day started with washing off the Fertan and letting that dry. Then is was the first coat of Keelblack. James did one side and me the other and we were done in one and three quarter hours. It is not much thicker than water and very easy to apply with rollers. When it goes on it's a very dark brown which then dries to a matt black. You are able to re-coat once it's touch dry but as we have plenty of time were not doing the second coat until tomorrow.
The other thing done today was undercoat over the red oxide primer for the gloss.
It stayed dry again today but no sun unlike yesterday so it was feeling a little chilly but not too bad.
