Finish primer goes on smoothly and beautifully, but still requires sanding to prepare for the gloss topcoats, so once more I sanded the hull, this time with 320 grit paper by machine and hand as necessary.
Afterwards, I went through the normal routine of blowing off the boat and walls, vacuuming, washdown, and an initial solvent wash for the hull to prepare for the final preparation steps, including striking and marking a new boottop. I had to leave the shop for the afternoon, so I’d finish up next time.
