I can multi task can't I?
With all the adjusted duties, less time is spent at this project, not no time. Everything got washed down, sanded and the first coat of primer added to the topsides. The biggest hurdle was the under side of the deck... what a pain! But the topsides made up for it. I have been waiting to see how she finally looked with a lick of paint.
I managed to prime the centerboard and rudder case as well. Time: 6 hrs (3 evenings)
