The primer had cured overnight, and now I lightly sanded it with 220 grit paper to prepare it for the next steps, and to smooth the surface.  Afterwards, I vacuumed and solvent-washed.

My next steps would include masking the actual stripes below the top line, and I chose to let the primer cure for another day before proceeding with overmasking.  Although there was other work I could do on this boat not related to the boottop, it was a good chance to move forward a couple other projects I had going on outside at the shop, so I spent most of the day on those boats.
