After a light sanding the first top coat was applied. Special attention was paid to the stem areas where the paint has a tendency to run down from the ends of the gains. The roller and brush method of applying the paint worked very well. A team of two on each side of the boat, one rolling, one brushing plus the close scrutiny of three quality control inspectors ensured a top notch job. Monday’s crew will be under pressure when they apply the final coat.
