April 2014

March, involved lots of clamp boards... lots of sanding... and lots of painting.

Short sentence, lots of hours.  We faired out and slicked out the inside surface of the planking above the waterline so she would be easy to maintain in the future.  This is the first coat.  The paint is a pre catalyzed water based epoxy from Sherwin Williams, which is one of the few that is both tough and tolerable in a confined space.  The fumes of and toxicity of most other products make it difficult to do an engine room without major forced ventilation which we are not set up for.
