Today was a big day for Flirt. While her hull is by no way near ready for paint, I got a layer of high build primer on her from Waterline to toerail. Instead of being discoloured and stained from sanding, epoxy, and rain, she now more or less gleams in a single layer of white.
Yes, you can still see some marks beneath the primer, and I still need to do some sanding on her topsides to get her totally smooth.. and as you can tell from her Starboard side, I still have raw epoxy to deal with, but this is still a step in the right direction.
As I am going with Petit for the paint, it makes sense to use the high-build primer. One quart was more than enough to get a single layer on Flirt’s topsides. I still have another to go before I need to buy another (or two).. but overall I am very pleased with how She is looking and with how well the primer went on.
Now to see how it sands.
Forgive the raw epoxy, that will get smoothed off soon!
