With the primer cured, I continued with the first coat of paint on the interior surfaces and gunwale trim. For this, I chose a light green color. When I chose the color, I’d been going for that sort of very light, Bahamian teal green sometimes seen on old wooden Maine lobster boats or Novis, but the actual color was somewhat different than I’d expected–but I liked it anyway. I overlapped the color from the various framing members onto the floor of the dory to ease cutting in later.
