It was a good weekend of work on Pleione. If I hadn’t met Kim, I would say it was ready for paint. He suggested an extra step. I’ll give that a try next.

The rub rail looks great. The  boat is pretty smooth.  The sanding is about as good as I can get it using my eye to scan, and hand to feel. It is tempting at this point to go straight to primer.

Instead, I’m going to lightly spray on a thin coat of spray paint. Then I’ll sand it off, to reveal the low spots I missed. I’ll give it a try this week, and I’ll take pictures.

I hope to have it paint ready in a week. We’ll see.

Ready for paint? Not quite yet . . . but very soon!

I still love the curves and lines of this boat.
