Scupper 57

< Back to Scupper


I got started sanding the high build in the cockpit, sanding all surfaces with 220 grit:  cockpit well, seats, bridgedeck, coamings.

Afterwards, I moved on to the coachroof, as well as a small portion of the foredeck and forward end of the cabin trunk near the centerline where I knew I’d not be able to easily reach later from the staging.

I’d sand the sidedecks and cabin trunk later, but for now, with the staging still set up at hull height, I turned to the hull, starting with the counter on both sides (reaching up as high as I could from the ground) and the transom, then continuing forward along the port side till I reached the stem, where I called it good for the day.  I sanded the fresh primer smooth with 220 grit on a vibrating finish sander and by hand as needed.

Total time billed on this job today:  6.25 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  71°, clouds and fog, humid.  Forecast for the day:  Cloudy, showers, fog, a thunderstorm, 73°
