Lyra Phase 2-42
First thing, I applied the second coat of gray nonskid to the decks.
Most of my “known” work list revolved around the deck and reinstalling hardware, and obviously this would have to wait till the paint had cured sufficiently, so in the meantime I reinstalled the rubrail on the hull. I used butyl tape sealant on the back side of the hollow half-oval trim pieces, and reinstalled all the sections around the boat. I had to redrill several of the screw holes that had gotten filled during the various hull and deck work.
A few bits of hardware still needed their undersides scraped of old sealant, including the jib tracks and bow and stern pulpits. I forgot to take a picture of the stern pulpit before I cleaned the bases.
Late in the day, the nonskid had dried enough that I could remove all the masking tape.
Finally, I reinstalled the companionway hatch rails and sliding hatch.
