With only a half day available, I managed to sand a good portion of the fresh primer, using 320 grit by machine and by hand. I started with the loose hatches and sea hood, then moved on to the cockpit and coachroof, and finally the port sidedeck, foredeck, toerails, cabin side, and sheer strake before I ran out of time. All that remained to finish was the starboard sidedeck and environs, which I planned to finish over the weekend.
