After cleaning up from the latest snowstorm outside, I got a late start in the shop and focused on sanding the skim-coated decks, removing the excess epoxy and bringing the decks closer to their final state of primer readiness. Many of the fastener holes and larger repairs would require another application of fairing compound, but now the old nonskid pattern was essentially smooth, and final rounds of finish sanding would take care of the rest.
With sanding complete, I vacuumed and solvent-washed the decks, leaving them ready for additional work next time.
