Some other helpful hints and lessons I learned.
1) Never try to touch up anything once you have tipped things out. You will just make a big mess.
2) I used aluminum foil to line the paint tray! This makes it very easy to cleanup.
3) With the cooler temps (50-60s) it takes a good 4-5 hrs to dry to the touch, so be sure not to put your finger prints on your finish! I learned this on the 1st coat! Lol! Just sanded it out.
Below are pictures of the 3rd coat. I plan on touching up a couple places as soon as I can get some warmer temperatures, but for the most part I am done.
Now that the temperatures are getting colder, I am going to start working on the spars, gallows pole and tiller.
Need to finish up my center board. I have 1 more coat of epoxy I need to apply and then I will need to sand. I just got a stainless steel bolt to us to install it, but will need to get a friend to cut it for me.
As temperatures permit, I will work on the boot stripe. I also need to do the inside painting.
I have plenty of tasks to do to keep me busy over the winter.
