Re: Should I sail or finish the decks......

I'd like to thank all the sailpersons who have attempted to guide me through this parlous decision.... on review, (end of day one) I agree with all and damn near lost my teeth once or twice but....through robust self denial or utter masochism I ended up working on the cabin sole( three coats and non slip) the companionway hatch (same) the lazarette hatches (nonskid and four coats) and a whole bunch of other stuff . When it was done...I knew one more day and then I can say to hell with appearances and get back to the Prime Directive: "Go Sailing or Go Bonkers"
Thanks all

Actually, a good day to paint would be a bad day to sail. Ideally, you will have overcast with no wind when you paint.

Update:

Sunday. beautiful day with 25-30 winds. Continued painting. Decks have two coats one coat of nonskid applied. Cabintop and sides two coats. Wind played hell with the paint laying down but it all looks 100% better anyhow. I feel one more wet sand comin on for the finale tomorrow pm....glad Im doing this before I reach 70....
