Lyra Phase 2-21
Because I knew I’d never be able to face it late in the day, I began the day’s sanding at the counter, working to remove the paint from the area I’d left behind on the port side, and an equivalent area to starboard.
With the “worst” part done, I moved back to the bow and picked up where I left off, spending the remainder of the day removing the rest of the paint from the hull with 40, then 80, grit paper. The gray substrate left behind was in good condition, and there were no unpleasant (or even pleasant) surprises. There’d be a few small areas requiring some minor repair/fairing attention, which I’d attend to in the immediate future.
