I spent the morning sanding the hull primer with 320 grit paper, by machine and hand as required.  The power went out at 1000, but I was able to continue on generator power for the remainder of the day and get through what I needed to.

Afterwards, I went through my normal cleaning procedures (blowdown, vacuum, solvent wash, shop rinse and cleaning) to prepare the boat and shop for the next step, which would be to mask off the sheer strake and new boottop.  But with the primer only just over 24 hours old, it was too soon to mask on top, so that task would await the morning.
