With spraying complete, over the weekend I removed all the masking tape, paper, and plastic to expose the boat in her new duds. To complete the new appearance, I waited a day for the boottop to cure further, then masked off and painted the top section of the bottom, extending down about a foot for now just for appearance’s sake; later in the season I’d paint the entire bottom to prepare her for the owners’ pickup in the spring.
Next: Nonskid and final touches.
