5 Good Gym members met the task owner Trevor by St Helena Boathouses, located by the riverside in Richmond.

This evening we were roughing down the doors, which are made from Iroko wood and adding some very needed teak oil paint. With the high tides reaching up to the Boathouses, these doors are always in need of a good layer of teak oil.

Thankful that the rain had stopped just in time, Trevor provided us with all the tools needed to get started. We started off with roughing down the doors with sanding blocks and then transformed the doors with a coat of teak oil.

We were very satisfied with our completed task and are looking forward to coming back for round 2!
