The talc in the primer worked well and being a very warm 26c day I had to keep adding thinners as it was drying on the applicator brush.

I went out after dinner and sanded it smooth. 

29c tomorrow I will finish the primer and re-mask the rear deck.

While waiting for the primer to dry I started looking at the wheel cover positioning and found I should have cut cut the outer pair across the grain as the first pair with the grain wouldn't bend sufficiently, so used the originals as a pattern for the new ones.



30c tuesday with a bit of luck I will start the hull painting.

A bit more filler was needed had dinner and went back out did the final sanding followed by more primer and tomorrow I'll make a means of marking the water line when done I'll sand with with 600grit paper followed by a tack rag, and she'll be ready for paint.

Pic's of today's efforts.

Got the bottom masked off ready for paint unfortunately rain is forecast for the next week with temp's in the mid 20's C and humidity 70% to 90% I won't risk paint bloom.

 



Mixed the red/dark brown enamel for the bottom and when cleaning up discovered I'd thinned it with acetone not general purpose thinners  Embarassed Mad scratch Crying or Very sad   and had to throw away 2 airbrush bottles full 1/2hour wasted.
