Calliope Girl 67


In the main cabin and galley, I masked off various places as needed, mainly around certain portions of the overhead (plastic laminate panels that would not be painted), deadlights and ports, and where the settee cabinetry met up with the varnished bulkheads and elsewhere.

Thusly masked, I was ready to apply white primer to all areas, basically starting at the top and working down and through all areas in as logical a way as I could.

Back on the shop floor, I primed the hatches from the settees, and a few other things that needed the primer as well, such as hatch openings and the edges of some panels.

Later, I installed the two forward chainplates permanently.  I’d planned to install and bed the deck cover plates as well, but discovered as I was preparing the original four (to remove old sealant) that I didn’t have the correct little screws on hand for attaching the plates to the deck, so final work on the chainplates would have to wait till another time.

After some odds and ends and general shop cleanup, the day and the week was done.
