Halcyon 26

< Back to Halcyon


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.

Total time billed on this job today:  5 hours
