Skeedeen Phase 6-11
Continuing where I left off, I finished up the first pass of sanding on the port side of the hull, removing the boottop paint and sanding the entire surface with 120 grit.
Next, I sanded the entire hull once more, this time with 220 grit paper, to smooth the surface properly for the finish primer. This didn’t dramatically change the appearance from the first round of sanding.
With the bulk sanding complete, I turned to the detail work, mainly the plank lines. Starting on the port side, I hand-sanded the depths of the plank lines as needed to scuff and prepare them for the primer, and spent additional time removing the vestiges of white paint from the boottop scribe line. In this manner, I worked along the port side, leaving the starboard side for next time.
