The first order of real business was to clean up the boat after her road trip north, taken care of by the owner, who would be available throughout the project to work on various preparatory aspects of the job, thereby preserving as closely as possible the original project scope. He began with shop vacuum, then solvent washed to clean the entire area. He also touched up a few areas that required additional sanding.
Afterwards, we masked off the areas required: ports, hatches, and other deck openings, as well as covering the hull with plastic sheeting to protect it from overspray. This, coupled with other preparations for primer application such as setting up the gun and hoses and other equipment, final solvent-wash of the deck, and washing down the shop, consumed the bulk of the day's work.
