Equinox Project | Wednesday, January 21, 2009

I began the day by sanding the primer with 320 grit paper.  Afterwards, I dusted off and solvent-wiped the hull so that I could move on with the next steps.



With finish primer now applied all the way to the new waterline, I struck a new line to demark the top edge of the new boottop.  After some consideration, I chose a 2" width for the new stripe, and, using the same methods I employed earlier, marked the new line on the hull.  Afterwards, I masked along the new marks using vinyl fine-line tape, and then regular masking tape to fill in the area beneath so that the hull paint wouldn't contaminate the new boottop area.


I continued by cleaning up the shop and rinsing down the staging, plastic drape, and floor, and then I solvent-washed the hull a final time using the Alexseal wipe-down solvent, then spent the remainder of the day's time preparing paint and spray equipment for tomorrow.
