Forward: Men At Work

Aft: Wet Sanding

New Colors

The latest primer coat is black after one coat of white and several coats of grey. Between each one there were applications of filler (also known as bog or bondo, depending on your location). And always: sanding. Hand sanding, machine sanding, long boarding, wet sanding, dry sanding. Sleeves of sand paper. Cans of filler. Layers sprayed on and then sanded off: over four weeks of this.

This job is employing 5 or 6 men, but labor is cheap in Thailand so I don't mind and meanwhile the hull is getting the best fairing job it's ever had.
