Paint test; appendages

Five hours this weekend between friday and today. First, we coated the bow and stern lockers with a two part epoxy primer. Very smelly stuff... The color of this primer is also quite strange

Waiting for the primer to dry, we started to work on shaping the centerboard. I had already cut several "guide" grooves whose position and depth is given by a NACA profile

Today we painted the interior of the lockers with a two part polyurethane white paint. This is very smelly too, plus it is not that pleasant to apply. I'm not enthousiastic about this stuff. I hope it will set properly but most probably we'll use other kind of paints for the rest of the boat.

Total work time to date: 400 hours.
