Before I could start the hull primer, I had to reset the staging to hull height, and once the planks were reconfigured I added a strip of masking paper just below the waterline (which was still masked off from the high-build primer) to protect the bottom against overspray. Then, I tacked off the hull.
With preparations complete, I spent the remainder of the day applying four coats of the Alexseal epoxy finish primer, sticking with white since the hull would be painted a light color. I went with four coats to provide good coverage over parts of the hull/deck joint, which was fairly dark even beneath the high-build.
