More stripe coats and some final primer
We have the engine room and aft cabin completely stripe coated with epoxy and we'll be spraying those areas this week. Everything below deck, forward of the engine room is now sprayed with final coat of 235 epoxy primer. The transformation inside is amazing - it's finally starting to look like a new boat. Once the interior is all primed, I'll be spraying Mascoat (an insulating paint that helps prevent condensation on steel surfaces) around all the hatches, portholes, and anywhere else that we will have exposed steel. I will also be spraying a white epoxy finish coat from the waterline down to the bilges, including the tank-tops. Above the waterline, the side-shell plating and overheads will get insulation. Exterior paint prep work will start soon.
