Lyra Phase 2-51


After sanding the fairing compound over the patched transducer holes, I found that I hadn’t quite gotten the final shape in one go-round–there were a few low spots still evident.  So I applied more fairing compound as needed to complete the task, leaving it overnight before sanding once more to complete the repairs.

After curing overnight, I could lightly sand a final time to complete the patches.  I’d give these a coat of paint in the near future when I moved the jackstands to take care of those areas as well.

At the radar through-deck wiring fitting, I added a plastic washer to help trim out the deck hole from beneath.  (The owner planned to paint the new head overhead himself later.)

Total time billed on this job today:  .75 hours (over two days)

0600 Weather Observation:  26°, mainly clear.  Forecast for the day:  Partly sunny, 46°
