Starting in the cockpit, then working my way around the hull, I sanded the fresh primer with 320 grit by machine and hand as needed.
After a break for an appointment away from the shop, I returned to clean up the boat and shop, the usual combination of sweep/vacuum/blow-down/water rinse (floor only), followed by an initial solvent-washing of all the painted surfaces to prepare for the next steps. With the dust cleaned off the primer, it highlighted a few areas that would require a bit of touch-up sanding that I’d do next time.
