After a full weekend, there was no problem this time with the fine filler curing in time.  It didn’t take long to sand the various areas I’d filled, after which I went through the usual steps:  vacuum; solvent wash; clean up and wash down shop and staging.

For the remainder of the day, I completed all the other items on the finish primer prep list (as it were), including a final solvent-wash with the fancy solvent, preparing paint and spray equipment, tacking off the hull, and other sundry.   Next:  finish primer.

Total time billed on this job today: 4.5 hours
