After final preparations, I applied three coats of Alexseal snow white gloss topcoat to the deck areas, working again in two separate phases: first the remote areas of the coachroof (around the companionway and forward hatch) and the cockpit well; then, three coats on the remaining areas, including the cabin trunk, channels, coamings, and bulwarks, along with the loose hatches on the shop floor.
