The first coat of paint after the primer took 2 full evenings to complete. Getting up in under all the little nooks and crannies. A few bruises gained trying to contort myself to access these areas. The next two coats went progressively easier. I finished the 3rd coat of paint on the top sides, centerboard and the rudder case tonight. Tomorrow it July 1st, CANADA Day, so I'll have the whole day to work on trial fitting the gunwales I have rough cut and shaped. they'll be removed and varnished then reinstalled.
Time: 12 hrs (over 4 days)
