I finished up the brightwork masking, taking care of the handrails, eyebrow trim, companionway, and cockpit. I used mostly the low-tack masking tape for these areas. This tape wasn’t so great to work with, but would be worth the frustration if it didn’t harm the white paint. It didn’t stick well over nonskid, curves, and corners, so I found myself constantly pressing it back down throughout the day.
After final preparations, I moved right ahead with the first coat of varnish on all areas.
