I spent the morning on the final tasks required to prepare for high-build primer, starting with masking off the brightwork and whatever else needed it. I thought the all-green look for the brightwork was an interesting one. (Maybe if the boat were Bahamian.)
With the masking complete, I did my final deck cleaning, vacuuming as necessary and a final solvent wash with the paint system’s proprietary wipe-down solvent.
I spent the rest of the day preparing the paint and spray equipment and all the other little things I do to transform from workshop to paint shop. I turned up the heat to bring up the shop temperature overnight, and looked forward to applying the primer next time.
