Door liners fitted to doors - and painted yet again.
As described earlier the steel doors have wooden liners of traditional design.
The doors have been painted with primer and gloss before the liners, also painted the same way on their back face, were screwed on with marine sealant around the edges.
When this had set, the excess bead which had exuded from between the two was carefully trimmed off and the liners, which are exposed to weather when the doors are open, painted with thinned paint to penentrate the wood. The six pairs of doors have now been remounted onto the hull and will also receive a coat of gloss before eventual undercoating, graining and traditional decoration
