Schoolboy gets dream job: helping paint GMIV

Schoolboy Adam Vince, 15, has taken time out from his classes at Crofton School, Stubbington, Hants to help out on Gipsy Moth IV.

Adam, was thrilled to be able to work on his favourite boat and has spent two weeks sanding down locker doors using three foot sandpaper blocks and helping Camper & Nicholsons’ paint expert Bob Purnell with his busy schedule.

Adam gets afloat regularly with his dad Jim on the family motor-cruiser for trips around the Solent.
