Final (Ha!) Sanding & First Flow Coat

Yet more sanding.  Oh boy.

Spent most of Saturday afternoon with the dory outside catching some rays, doing a hopefully final rough sand. Cleaned up the newly faired areas plus some more I missed the first time. Not my idea of fun but a necessary evil. It would be easy at this point to just say, good enough, but I'm going to try to keep pushing for "best possible" since the final paint coats depend a lot on this.

Sunday AM up bright and early for the first thin flow coat on the deck and lids. Used some Cabosil (remember "thixotropic" for you earlier readers) to keep the sags and runs down.  Can't seem to keep all of the bubbles out, even with foam rollers.

Looks like some more finish sanding (much better than rough sanding) between coats.
