Arietta 18


After cleaning the hull and deck from excess sanding dust, I applied light amounts of fine fairing compound where necessary, mainly to fill small pinholes and the occasional void that had escaped detection during earlier fairing steps.  On the hull, I could just see faint shadows beneath the primer to indicate some of the places I’d repaired and filled earlier, and I focused on these areas to be sure there were no pinholes left that the primer hadn’t filled.  On deck, I found several areas where some of the repair work required a bit of touchup.

The filler would have to cure overnight, so for now I’d done all I could on the boat.
