Rocket 4


I began the day with a light sanding of the coamings, and then the primed rubrails.  After the usual rounds of cleanup, I applied a full coat of maintenance varnish to all areas of the coaming.

Later in the day, I received the paint I’d ordered for the rubrail.  Anticipating the delivery, I was ready to go once it arrived, and in short order applied the first of at least a couple coats of the new paint.  I chose a a traditional, yet fun, color called “tint green” in a semi-gloss finish, which I thought would be a nice accent for this boat (and was).
