I had to:
- Mark the waterline with the aid of a laser level
- Paint the below-waterline area with anti-fouling paint (expensive!)
- Mask off and prime the sides above the water line.
- Sand the primer
- Paint the sides in dark blue.
- Mask off and paint the white boot stripe, again with the help of the laser level
- Finish priming and painting the interior cabin walls (most of it was painted months previously, before the deck and cabin roof were installed.
- Varnish the cabin ceiling, cabin trim, and the rear compartment ceiling.
Lots of work! Once the paint had dried a couple of days, we flipped the boat right side up, back into its cradle. Like the first flip, this was easier than expected.
