Further 70


To recover from the paint disappointment, I spent time over the weekend lightly sanding the hull by hand (320), just to lightly scuff the surface and prepare it for respraying.  The killer of it is that the paint looked good except for the fact that the primer still showed through; the overall finish was what I’d hoped otherwise.  But that was good news too, as it meant that sanding was quick enough and straightforward, not that I didn’t wish it wasn’t necessary.

Afterwards, I cleaned up the hull and shop to prepare for respraying.
