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.

Total time billed on this job today: 4 hours

0600 Weather Observation: Clear, 14°, about 2" new snow overnight (about 6" total from yesterday), dew point 9°. Forecast for the day: Partly sunny, 23°
