Metal work nearly complete, and in the process of masking with 3 layers of duct tape for sand blasting. Note stainless bridge deck, coaming top, bulwark cap, winch bases, companionway slides, pilot house window frames, dorade tops, etc. etc. Anywhere where there's a drilled or tapped hole is stainless. This was an awkward phase, as once I sand blasted and primed with epoxy, I never wanted to touch it with a torch or an arc welder again, in order not to disrupt the coating system, which meant that I had to try to have every last tiny detail done before blasting. Just figuring out what those details were, much less doing them, was a daunting prospect. Next
