Priming and fitting keelband

Not the most exciting work but essential nonetheless, I have been rubbing back and priming the outside of the boat. Also invested in some 1" by 3/16" brass convex strip to make a new keelband. The cost was eye-watering and was more than half what I paid for the original boat!
Found this trailer and have ordered parts to adapt it to carry 'Nanw'
Keelband cut and fastened - cost a small fortune!
Outer hull primed. Underwater primer used below the waterline. Walestrake varnished.
