Skeedeen Phase 6-15
To begin, I lightly sanded the second round of fine filler as needed, completing the hull repair and fairing work. Afterwards, I vacuumed and solvent-washed the hull.
I cleaned up and washed the floor, and then masked over the engine room vent openings from outside to prepare for painting. At the bow, I set up some low staging to help me reach the highest points of the bow when painting.
In, around, and between this, I prepared painting equipment, paint and primer, shop lighting, and the myriad other steps needed to prepare the boat and shop for the work ahead. Later, I solvent-washed the hull one more time, this time with the proprietary solvent designed for this use by the coatings manufacturer.
