Fritz 8


I began with a light sanding of the first coat of finish paint on the centerboard trunk repairs, after which I cleaned the area as required and applied a second coat of the Hatteras off-white with flattening agent mixed in.

To finish up the small hull repairs at the stem and starboard bow, after final preparations I masked off the areas with foam tape and masking paper, then, over the course of the remainder of the morning, sprayed on three coats of gloss-white LPU topcoat that matched the existing hull finish and paint system.

Later in the day, the paint had cured to the point that I could remove the masking from both areas.

With just a few final details to take care of, I expected to complete work on the project next time.
