Low resolution night time photos hide all of the brush stroke marks and little unsightly things here and there. Primekote cures quickly when it's still 85 degrees at night. Work boat finishes are the most functional though, righhhhhhht? Who needs a showboat.

Prime x2

I took the weekend off to go visit Alison in Birmingham. We went up to Little River Canyon (600' deep) to swim in the river that winds through it. It's pretty cool to have crystal clear water, 50 foot boulders, and 600' of walls on each side while you enjoy the refreshing water. Today I got the second coat of primer on the hulls after sanding down the first to 120. There are a few pinholes and voids here and there which I will fill in tomorrow. After this is complete, I plan to flip the hulls and start prepping the decks. They don't need much more than sanding and a final epoxy coat before they can be primed. Anyways, here are some photos.

Of course there had to be a massive ledge about 3' underwater. No jumping unfortunately

Second prime coat made her look pretty good!

Super tired so won't be writing much tonight. First coat of primer is on!

Epoxy Primekote fumes were horrible so took afternoon off to sail my Sunfish, aptly named Gertrude.
