Project Log:  Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Now that the hull paint had enjoyed sufficient cure time, I prepared for the final stage of painting:  the boottop.  To begin, I masked off the top edge of the boottop/bottom edge of the topside paint, first with a narrow strip of special vinyl fine-line tape, then with regular masking tape, bringing the green tape close to the bottom edge of the vinyl.  Then, I covered the entire hull with plastic and, near the area to be painted, masking paper, since I never trusted the plastic to be completely hole-free.


Afterwards, I applied four coats of Alexseal snow white to the boottop area.



Total Time Today:  3.75 hours
