It was clear that at least some areas of the deck would require a second coat of nonskid paint, despite manufacturer claims of single-coat coverage.  Towards that end, I got started right away in the cockpit and retaped the borders, using a special, flexible vinyl tape to wrap the corners this time so I could duplicate exactly the existing paint line.  The poop deck also required a second coat, and I masked that area as well.

I wasn't thrilled with how the single coat looked elsewhere on deck either, and after discussions with the owner we decided to proceed with a second coat over the entire deck.  So I continued masking the coachroof areas.

To break things up, I decided to go ahead and paint the cockpit, coachroof, and poop deck immediately, and leave the masking and painting of the sidedecks for later.  The second coat went down nicely and made a huge positive difference in the appearance of the decks.  I pulled masking tape off each section as I proceeded, having learned the appropriate tape removal time scheme during yesterday's paint application.


With the cockpit and coachroof painted, I spent the rest of the afternoon finishing up the masking on the sidedecks and foredeck.  I'd paint these tomorrow.
