Rhodes 9

< Back to Rhodes 18


Back after a relaxing vacation, I picked up where I left off:  continuing work on the reinforcement around the mast step.  The first coat of fairing compound awaited my attention, and now I sanded the area as needed to smooth and bring it down to proper contours, inasmuch as possible.  After cleaning up, I applied a second coat as required, filling the few voids and bringing the area to what I hoped would be final specifications before primer.

The small size of the job and the elapsed time between rounds of fairing compound meant a fair bit of required down time at this stage, but with an eye towards high-build primer soon, I masked off the boat below the waterline, mainly to protect the trailer from overspray.

Total time billed on this job today:  1.75 hours

0600 Weather Observation:
Mostly clear, 60°.  Forecast for the day:   sun and clouds, 70s.
