I've been painting the companionway screens over the past several
days. I have a coat of primer and finish on them. I haven't decided
if I'll put another coat of finish on them. I think not at this
point. They're pretty crude. I'm not sure they're worth the effort of another coat of paint. We'll see how they work out and go from there.
I finally had some time at home and I got tired of waiting
for warm weather and decided to go ahead and get some painting
done. I decided to paint the aluminum brackets that make up the
rudder. I got a coat of primer on them today. Its rather rough and
I'm sort of wishing I had waited for warm weather and spray
painted... but oh well, we're making progress.
I finished painting the rudder head and got it back
together over the weekend. The wood blocks in the rudder head got several coats of Interlux Schooner Gold varnish.
I had ordered and received a quart of Pettit Easypoxy in off-white. That color matches the boat pretty well, and I got the undersides of the locker covers and companionway cover painted today. They are ready to go, and I'm pleased enough with the Easypoxy in off-white to go ahead with some of the other painting I intend to do. Yah!
