Arietta 25


The next step in the painting process would be the boottop, but it was too soon to think about overmasking the fresh hull paint, so the day, as always at this point, was mainly about waiting and watching the paint dry, so to speak.

I spent part of the morning doing what I could:  Unmasking the boottop and cockpit locker lids, and generally preparing for the next day’s work.

Meanwhile, I took opportunity of the available time to check over the (minimal) hardware going back in the cockpit and on the poopdeck, cleaning any old sealant away and checking my fastener inventory to ensure I had on hand what was needed to reinstall the cleats, padeyes, new winch pockets, and other.

Total time billed on this job today: 2.5 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  31°, cloudy, breezy.  Forecast for the day:   Gradual clearing, 37°
