Scupper 182


Now that the topsides paint had had adequate cure time, I worked to mask off the hull so I could spray the boottop.  I started with a narrow strip of vinyl fine-line tape to define the top edge of the stripe, then covered nearly all the vinyl tape with a strip of regular masking tape.

Afterwards, I covered the hull in plastic and masking paper above the boottop to protect against overspray.

After final preparations, including solvent-washing and tacking off the boottop, I applied three coats of Alexseal Toreador red to the stripe, leaving things to cure overnight.

Total time billed on this job today:  4.5 hours
