After final preparations, paint mixing, and tacking off, I applied three coats of Alexseal off-white gloss topcoat to the deck areas. I sprayed the decks in two stages this time (I’d been able to do the primers all at once), to avoid leaning into fresh paint: first the cockpit well and seating areas, as well as the coachroof and hatch tops, then, after three coats in those areas, I continued with three coats on the cabin trunk channels, and other areas.
