Ensign #1212 | Wednesday, July 16, 2014

The new topsides paint had had sufficient cure time to allow retaping.  Starting with a thin strip of special vinyl fine-line tape, I masked off the hull just above the boottop edge.  This would provide a clean, sharp line between the two colors.  Then, I covered this with regular masking tape, leaving only the very lower edge of the vinyl tape exposed. 



Next, I covered the entire hull with masking paper, taping it securely all over to protect against overspray.


Before completing the final preparations for the boottop, I took some time to chisel flush the excess bungs from the cockpit sole.

After solvent wash and tack-off, over the course of a few hours I sprayed three coats of Alexseal gloss white topcoat on the bootop.
