In a short morning work session, I sanded the new epoxy fairing compound on the hull-deck joint with 80 grit discs. I was pleased with how well the joint turned out after a single coat of fairing compound. Other than some shallow and expected low areas, the contours were close to where they needed to be, with additional work ahead mainly focused on finishing off the top edge of the repair, where it transitioned to the molded toerail, and also at the stern ends.
With only a short time available, I finished up by giving the shop a rough clean after the week’s efforts. Next time, I could continue with the second round of fairing filler, and more work sanding the remainder of the topsides.
