Scupper 172


With the staging still down at hull height, I began sanding the fresh primer in the cockpit (I like to start with the “worst” areas), sanding all surfaces smooth with 320 grit paper by machine and hand as needed, then moved up to the expansive coachroof to continue the work.

Next, I moved down to ground level and began sanding the hull at the counter and transom, eventually working my way up the port side then back down the starboard to complete the hull sanding.

Now, I moved the staging back to deck height, and, starting at the stem, sanded the starboard foredeck, sidedeck, cabin trunk, coaming, and poop deck, including the port side as far forward as the winch island.  It would have been nice to finish up the sanding on the port deck, but alas, that would have to wait for next time.

Total time billed on this job today:  8.25 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  68° (!), windy, cloudy, and showery.  Forecast for the day:  Showers, drizzle, fog, then clearing and windy, dropping through the day to 49°
