Re: Topside makeover

So.. The port side didnt need any marine tex, so I got that all sanded and ready for paint this past weekend. I hit it with 80 with the speedfile, and then 80, 120 and 180 on the random orbital. I did all this after I filled the holes and cracks on the starboard side. I went down after work yesterday and sanded the marine tex. Most were perfect but 2 needed a lil more love, so I mixed a little more and took care of them. The plan is to do a final marine tex sand tomorrow night. If the weather cooperates, I will try to be ready for primer by the weekend with a plan to paint on the next day that works.


Getting there!
