After many hours of cutting and fitting of parts the interior is finally ready for coating with three coats of epoxy. Not seen in these photos are the berth flat parts which were coated outside of the boat. The un-coated parts of the bilge are where the lead ballast will be epoxied into place.
Once the epoxy had hardened I went at it with a card scraper to remove and lumps or bumps in anticipation of the 3 coats of epoxy primer followed by 3 coats of two part polyurethane top coat.
Next up is the building of the cockpit, installing the deck-beams and decks and lots and lots of other things to do. I was glad to have this bit of painting done and get a chance to work without having to wear a mask all day. My big hooter gets a bit sore after a while being jammed into a rubber mask and I’ve tried quite few masks but my nose is just too big. It’s a hard life! ‘Til next time Nanu Nanu
