With the topcoats complete and amply cured, I began by removing all the masking tape, paper, and plastic from the cockpit and the rest of the boat.
Next, I masked over the fresh paint in the cockpit, following the layout I’d made during my earlier masking rounds but this time to protect the new paint from the nonskid to go in the field areas.
After final cleanup and preparations, I applied the first of two coats of light gray nonskid paint to these areas, leaving it to cure during the day while I worked on other projects.
