Painting the Railing - Fishermens Terminal - Seattle WA

Main·te·nance [mānt(ə)nəns,ˈmāntn-əns] noun: the process of maintaining or preserving someone or something, or the state of being maintained.

:  :  :

Here,

in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle

at Fishermens Terminal,

a crew member works at the task of painting the railing on a fishing vessel.

:  :  :

Corrosion is ever eating away at paint and metal on vessels

whether in fresh or salt water,

although salt water has the added corrosive factor

of the salt itself.

:  :  :

Vessel owners must be in a constant battle

with the elements to maintain the integrity of their craft

or they will slowly degrade

until they are no longer seaworthy

and eventually become

derelict.

: : :

This fellow is wearing a tyvek suit

for protection while painting,

I need to get one of those.

When I paint either interior or exterior of our house,

I inevitably get paint on myself, a lot of paint,

and keep an old pair of coveralls for just that task,

but perhaps a tyvek suit

would be better.
