What Colour Ilen's Hull? - You Decide in Afloat Poll

8th March 2017
Ilen's hull will soon be painted grey or green, you decide in our poll below Ilen's hull will soon be painted grey or green, you decide in our poll below

The new Larch hull of the ketch Ilen nearing completion in West Cork has had its first coat of primer, only after much plugging, filling and sanding. Preparation, as all painters know, is the difference between a good job and a not so good one.

In a few weeks it will be time to follow the undercoat with a good finish or topcoat. And apart form the many paint types one has to choose from, comes the additional aesthetic choice - which hull colours might the good ship Ilen ultimately carry.

A wide hull colour selection process has been narrowed down to two distinct options - Green and Grey. Let us know what you think in the poll below:
