In a short half-day, I got to work on the coachroof, sanding not only the new core repair, but also all the small fiberglass repairs and a first good round of sanding on all the existing nonskid pattern to begin to smooth it out and transition the edges to the smooth areas. Later, I’d skim coat and fair all this, though I didn’t have time at the moment.
In the cockpit, I sanded flush the various small hole repairs, and lightly scuffed the inside laminate of the counter through hulls. Sometime later, I’d laminate and patch the outsides of these openings.
Next, I sanded the most recent application of fairing filler on the decks outboard of the cockpit, and the foredeck repair.
