With the primer ready for the next steps after an overnight cure, I spent several hours sanding first the hull, and then the deck areas, with 320 grit paper, by machine and hand as required. Afterwards, I spent the rest of the day with thorough cleanup chores: vacuum, solvent wash, shop blow-down, sweeping, and floor-washing, all required before I could begin the final stages of prep for the gloss topcoats on deck and hull. Our stretch of fine late fall weather continued, making shop work that much more enjoyable in the afternoon with the big door open for ventilation as I worked on the cleanup.
Total time billed on this project today: 7.5 hours
