Waanderlust Project | Thursday, August 12, 2010

Next on the interior prep agenda was to sand the underside of the sidedecks and remaining areas of the exposed hull on each side of the main cabin.  These areas were covered with a combination of flaking paint, mildew, and old contact adhesive from the foam that had been glued to every hull surface when I started the project.  It was satisfying to remove the old material.


Afterwards, I turned to the main cabin overhead, which featured more of the flaking and loose paint.  Much earlier, I'd given the overhead a cursory scrape to remove the worst of the loose material, but now I sanded away the paint and primer beneath to better prepare the surface for new finish.  To avoid oversanding, I left vestiges of the old primer behind, but subsequent, lighter sandings, all part of the normal prep process, would further strip and smooth the surface.  There was plenty of additional work ahead in cleaning up the corners and areas the larger tool wouldn't fit.

The saloon was looking better already.
