Now that the paint was cured, and I was done with spraying, I could remove all the masking tape, paper, and plastic from the boat early in the day.

Once I was back to the bare boat, I masked off the smooth deck areas to prepare the field for nonskid, as well as around the top of the hull using a special low-tack tape.

After final preparations, I applied two coats of light beige nonskid paint over the course of the day–heat and drying conditions allowed for the second coat late in the day.  This completed the main painting process and the bulk of the project.  Still to come:  project wrap-up.
