Long Week of Hard Work

Well its been a while since my last post but have been hard at work completing the finish of the exterior. After completely wet sanding the entire exterior with 1000,1500, and 2000 grit paper.

The next step was machine polishing with 3m's Finesse-it using a wool pad.

Next used the polisher to apply Wolfgang's paint sealant. Then hand waxed with Pinnacle Sovereign Carnuaba wax. The resulting finish is smooth as glass and feels soft to the touch. There's one picture where I show the products used sitting on the rear deck and the area was almost flat. I had a hard time keeping all three containers from sliding off of the surface because it was so slick. All that is left now is to complete the interior; seat, back brace, install blocks inside the hatches so as to hold the covers on with bungees from underneath, work out some form of foot brace.

Hey Danny. Nice work on the boat. She is a beauty. I am just finishing mine and have the hull varnished, on to the deck. Did you let the varnish cure for awhile before you polished.
