Scupper 176


I continued the layout for the final masking on the port side, working aft from the bow to mark the deck the way I’d done at the stern earlier.  Once I had my series of marks, I applied the masking tape along both lines, fairing the curve by eye as needed.

Then, I completed the same on the starboard side, starting on the quarter then moving forward to the bow.

Afterwards, I filled in the field areas with masking paper and tape to protect against overspray, which completed the deck taping.

Along the hull-deck joint, I applied a length of plastic sheeting to protect the hull during the deck work, securing it with masking tape to the outer line of tape I’d laid on the decks.

I spent the remains of the day on various final preparations, including vacuuming and solvent-washing the deck areas to be painted, preparing paint and spray equipment, and all the other small items leading up to a final state of readiness for the deck topcoats.
