Waanderlust--Phase IV | Tuesday, September 1, 2015

The transducer plug had cured overnight, and after a light sanding inside and out the area was ready for fiberglass.  On the outside of the hull, I sanded a bit more to provide a slight recess for the new fiberglass so that the repair would ultimately be flush.  Afterwards,  I applied two layers of heavy material over each side of the patch

    

         

I lightly sanded the "tie coat" primer in the head and, after cleaning up, applied a coat of one-part white primer over all areas.

         

    

Down in the woodshop, I performed several milling operations on the two new door frame blanks, to create the necessary overlay rabbet, round the visible edges, and provide a recess for the doors' field panels.  I prepared two 1/4" plywood panels for the doors to fit the openings, and applied a coat of primer to them.


With milling operations complete, I sanded the door frames to clean and smooth them, then applied a sealer coat of varnish.


Meanwhile, I sanded and revarnished the companionway trim, continuing the buildup.
