Scupper 174


Now that the primer sanding was complete, my next task was to clean up the boat and shop.  I went through the usual motions to thoroughly blow down and sweep the shop and boat, which I followed by rinsing off the floor and staging and other surfaces to calm any remaining dust before thoroughly vacuuming the hull and deck and then solvent-washing both as well.

With the deck clean and dry, I began the process of masking off for the gloss topcoats.  Starting on the coachroof, I marked and masked a 1-1/2″ border around the edges, including the companionway and forward hatch, and masked to the lines, then covered the field areas (which would eventually be nonskid) with paper to protect against overspray and also give me places to lean, support, and kneel as needed during the final painting.

I continued in the cockpit and similarly marked and masked all areas as needed.  I was out of time for now, but would continue the masking and other prep work next time.

Total time billed on this job today:  7.5 hours
