Two hours today for the second coat of primer:
We noticed a very strange effect when coating the port side of the hull which we cannot explain: we will sand it when dry and recoat it
Total work time to date: 737 hours
Two hours of work today. We sanded the graphite coating to a feather edge on the hull panels; put masking tape all around the edge making sure that the primer will cover about 1 cm of the graphite coating; protected the newly coated bottom with plastic; lightly sanded the whole hull with 240 grit, and cleaned the boat. Next time we will give the first coat of primer.
Total work time to date: 733 hours
Two hours of work today. We bought a new roll of masking tape so we could finish to cover the hull with a plastic skirt. We then gave a light scuff with 240 grit to the hull bottom, and finally gave a first coat using about 250 grams of clear resin to which we added 30% (in volume) of graphite powder.
Here's yours truly giving the first coat
and here's Cinzia doing a thorough quality check:
Just one hour of work today
Unexpectedly, we ran immediately out of masking tape 😧 so we will have to buy some more...
