We’ve had to adjust the schedule many times over the last few weeks as we try to prep each area so it’s ready for either primer or paint the following day. Since I can only work on this refit on weekends and unplanned projects (like de-SMIB-ifying the helm door opening) consume a lot of unexpected time, it’s been a real juggling act keeping the project moving along. Still, we’re making good progress and the hardtop is already painted with the shiny and non-skid.
Since the mahogany toe rails had to be installed before we paint the decks, priming the decks was today’s top priority.
Next, we wait 1.5 hours before applying Awl Quik.
And with that, the decks are primed!
