I spent the first part of the day sanding the cockpit once more, this time with 320 grit paper by machine and hand as required to ready the primer for the next steps.
Afterwards, I cleaned the boat and shop thoroughly and, since it was too soon to start masking over the primer for the topcoat (the last coat of primer had only been applied during mid-afternoon the day before and required 24 hours minimum cure time), I laid out and prepared masking materials for next time, when I hoped to mask, then apply topcoat to, the cockpit.
