Dory 10

< Back to Oyster Dory


After a light sanding for the transom, which took care of the edges of the new material and also prepared the field for additional work, I used a two-part epoxy-based primer to pre-prime all the new fiberglass, including the various areas of fairing compound and other work, as a safeguard against problems with curing of other one-part paints over the fresh epoxy, which can be an issue.  If nothing else, using the epoxy primer helps to speed up the painting process rather than awaiting for some weeks the complete curing of epoxy resin required to ensure proper paint curing otherwise.

Total time on this job today:  .75 hour
