Now that the bottom paint had had a chance to cure, I masked the bottom edge of the boottop, then sanded the gelcoat between the tape to prepare it for primer and paint.
After solvent-washing the newly-sanded area, I applied a coat of gray primer.
2″ below the sheerline, I installed a narrow cove stripe of light gray vinyl, which would tie in with the boottop when all was said and done. I also removed the horrible old registration numbers from the bow so I could replace them with some nice vinyl lettering, which I’d ordered already.
