With the paint cured sufficiently overnight, I could remove the masking from the boottop and sheer strake, revealing a sneak peek at how the trim would ultimately look on the hull.  Other than some other minor prep work, however, this was all I could do for the moment, as the fresh paint had to cure further before I could mask over it to finish the trim, which was the next and final stage of the painting process.
