I lightly sanded with 320 grit the first coat of finish paint in the interior, then vacuumed, solvent-washed, and tacked off to prepare for the second coat.

Next, I applied a second coat of semi-gloss white enamel to all areas of the interior, as well as the loose panels and hatches underway.

I lightly sanded the propane cylinder box to scuff the new fiberglass and remove any sharp edges, then, after removing the temporary glue blocks from within, installed some lightweight tabbing along the inside seams as well.

With new fasteners on hand, to finish up the day I installed the chainplate deck covers at all six locations, with heavy beads of sealant in the slots, around the chainplate, and along the bases and fastener holes in all cases.  With the adjacent decks protected with masking tape, I left the excess sealant squeezeout to cure for removal later.
