August West 11
After solvent-washing the bottom to remove any dust and prepare the surface, I masked off the bottom edge of the boottop with some light-tack tape, then applied one coat of green ablative antifouling paint.
After the first coat had had a chance to cure long enough, I applied a second coat, more for overall coverage over the old black paint than for any true need in terms of performance.
To give the owner an overall sense of the boat’s new appearance, as well as to eyeball the proposed eyebrow and determine whether to reinstall a cove stripe, I moved the boat outside during the afternoon, giving me a chance to take a series of photos from more of a distance. (Note: these photo files are not resampled and are a bit larger to allow more detail.)
