Halcyon 28

< Back to Halcyon


By machine and hand as necessary, I sanded the decks to smooth and prepare the freshly-applied high-build primer for the next steps.

This primer step highlighted various areas requiring a bit of final attention, mainly pinholes in the old gelcoat or laminate, minor crazing, and similar minor flaws that the high-build didn’t fill on its own.  So after cleanup, vacuum, and solvent wash, I applied fine epoxy fairing compound around the deck as needed, focusing mainly on the areas that would eventually be finished with gloss paint, but also in the field areas where necessary.

Total time billed on this job today:  6.5 hours

0600 Weather Observation:
14°, light sleet and freezing rain, 4-6″ of snow and sleet overnight.  Forecast for the day:  snow ending, warming to the 40s briefly.
