Sailmaster 131 | Wednesday, August 14, 2013

After preparing new estimates for the proposed deck repairs and interior work, I got to work on the hull.  The old paint, which was in poor condition, needed to be removed.  Starting at the starboard bow, I sanded away the old paint with 40 and then 80 grit paper, the first of several rounds of sanding the hull would receive.  Over the course of the day, I worked my way down the starboard hull, the counter, outboard well, transom, and back up the port side, ending about halfway up the port side before I had to knock off for the day.



The light blue gelcoat beneath was in fair condition, with the usual collection of surface flaws, stress cracks in some areas, and small pockmarks in fairly widespread that corresponded with and appeared to be the result of water trapped beneath the old aftermarket paint. Final vestiges of the old paint would eventually disappear during the next rounds of surface prep and sanding.
