The fine fairing compound had plenty of cure time over the weekend, and now I sanded these areas as needed to remove the excess and complete the high build phase.
During the rest of the day, I cleaned up and prepared the boat and shop: blow down, vacuum, rinse down the floor, two rounds of solvent wash, and all other related steps to prepare the decks and loose parts for finish primer next. As before, I prepared portions of the deck with protective paper for me to walk, kneel, and/or lean on so I could reach and paint the inboardmost areas first.
