Arietta Phase 2-20


After final preparations, I applied 4 coats of epoxy finish primer to the decks, spanning several elapsed hours.

It wasn’t my day for video.  My first attempt resulted in this unwelcome discovery when I retrieved the camera:

I formatted and reset the camera between coats, and tried again for the second coat, successfully recording the dramatic scene below.  However,  something happened to my final saved version of this video between 0:19 and 1:55 (frozen image,), and after some attempts I was unable (and/or unwilling and out of time to continue trying) to repair it. I decided to upload the video despite this, so just fast forward through the dead zone if you want to see the rest of the excitement.

I have legitimate respect for those people who make and post real videos.  I am not worthy, but it’s what I can do for now.  Anyway, the primer looked terrific, which is all that mattered.

Total time billed on this job today:   4 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  28°, overcast.  Forecast for the day:  Wintry mix, then rain, 48°
