During the first part of the morning, I finished up various final prepwork for the primer and paint stage ahead, including some additional masking (mainly some additional paper to protect the hull around the stern quarters of the boat), plus setup of paint and spray equipment as needed. Once all the related preparations were complete, I finished up with a final solvent wash in the cockpit, this time using the paint system’s proprietary solvent for the purpose.
Then, over the course of a few elapsed hours, I applied three coats of epoxy-based high-build primer to the cockpit areas.
