Sea Glass Refit | May 17, 2007

I began the day by sanding all the ancillary deck hatches--forward hatch, companionway hatch, icebox hatch, and lazarette hatch--to prepare them for painting.  I hadn't touched them yet, but now I needed to remove the old paint and molded nonskid pattern (as needed) so that I could prime and paint them to match the remaining decks.  Next week, I'll mix up small batches of primer and paint and finish these hatches off.

I continued on the boat afterwards, and masked off for the nonskid, carefully following the edge of the white Alexseal. 


Then, I cleaned the nonskid portions of the deck, and mixed up a custom color for the nonskid using a 1:1 ratio of Interlux Interdeck white and beige to lighten somewhat the stock beige color.  Then, I rolled on the first of two coats of the Interdeck; as usual, the nonskid seemed to pull together the entire deck as a whole and make it look complete.
