Skeedeen Phase 6-31
Now that the hull paint work was finally complete, I could focus on the remaining work list, including brightwork maintenance and reassembling the boat after the paint and engine room work earlier.
The remaining brightwork on deck was in generally good condition after a season. I began as usual by removing any hardware that I could.
Next, I sanded all the brightwork with 220 grit to prepare it for the maintenance coats of varnish ahead. Afterwards, I vacuumed and solvent-washed all areas to remove sanding dust.
During what remained of the day’s available time, I began masking around the woodwork, starting in the cockpit and helm area. I’d finish up the outboard sides of the windshield and other areas next time.
