All day was spent sanding down the imperfections. I hope I'll never have to do anything like this again. The sanding was far too much to handle. Still was having extreme muscle pain.
It's now more smoother than before. Perhaps half of the primer was sanded down to get it this way.
Second and last coat of $100+ per gallon sealer is on the Batboat. I got two thick coats from the gallon kit and that's all but was more than enough protection for the hull. :)
Rested and hydrated myself then I filled in holes in the topside. :)
The sealer is flexable. It coated the paint pan well also. Good stuff.
Before filling holes the topside was washed down with dewaxer.
I used poly resin mixed with talc. Bad move. All fills eventually shrank, some cracked and it took over a day for them to cure.
I dread redoing these fills. Will do that work next year.
