Around the boatyard
Texa: This X441 was looking sadly faded after a few years’ cruising in the Mediterranean sun. She has been repainted with blue Awlgrip, with X-Yachts trademark three white stripes, plus boot-top and coveline reinstated, and looks like new. Areas of her teak decking have also been refastened.
Green Pepper: This Westerly 33 has been resprayed green, using single-pack Jotun paint. This was chosen because the hull already had a single-pack covering, with which a two-pack treatment like Awlgrip would have been incompatible. The result is impressive, and this treatment represents a considerable cost saving compared with Awlgrip.
