19MAR2010 - Getting ready to paint
Well, I'm going to be a busy boy this weekend. I have to clean and primer about 2000 welds so that Lake Union Dry Dock can paint next week. Most of the welds are down below the main deck so I'll be horizontal with my wire brush, rag, and acetone. After I clean I have to go over the welds twice with a two part epoxy primer. Doing this by hand gets into the cracks and crevices that the spray gun can't.
They are going to pressure wash the hull today, start on the stainless rail work Monday and Tuesday, paint at the end of the week, and launch her right after the paint dries.
