It was a transition day, as I prepared to make a temporary switch away from carpentry and interior work to focus on the deck primer and paint over the next week or so.

Before I began final preparations for the painting process, however, I chiseled and sanded away the excess bungs on the various interior panels and trim that I'd installed in the past several days, a rather lengthy process considering the number of bungs to smooth.  Afterwards, I cleaned up the inside of the boat, and removed all my tools so that nothing would be trapped within the boat while she was closed up for paint, in case I needed anything in the meantime.



I vacuumed the boat and shop, removed all the excess materials, supply carts, and the like from the shop, and then performed an initial solvent-wash on the decks so that I could be sure tape would stick later.



Finally, at the end of the day, I had time to begin the varnish buildup on the second side of the coamings (2).  The first side had 5 coats, and it was a good time to catch up the second side.

Total Time Billed on This Job Today:  7.25 hours
