Today I sanded the jotafair I applied yesterday, then I mixed up some epoxy resin and sealed around the hatches. Once that was done I removed the remaining stuck on bits of the old plywood plate for the raydome that was stuck on with silaflex then I mixed up some more jotafair and skim coated the area. Tomorrow Iíll give the areas a touch up with the sander then Iíll roll on some Penguard High Build Primer then some grey kiwigrip non slip. Click image for larger version

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! Dull, non playful Jack can make Jill a pissed-off gal. Most disturbing thing to this proceeding and oncoming elevated tit for tat scenario is that Jill may find ways to play without Jack. Well... then Jack becomes a really pissed-off guy!


With both Jack and Jill pissed-off: The work that Jack was going to beautifully finish for Jill and himself becomes such a burden to both that Jack pretty much says fck it! Then Jill says fck U Jack; I thought you were going to build us something beautiful! Then Jack says fck me... no, no, no... I look at it the other way; fck U Jill for not waiting to play until I was done and finished - and, on and on it goes... until neither of either the outcome knows!


Moral to Jack n' Jill story: Take a break when you feel need to and very importantly be sure to take a break whenever Jill feels you need to!!!

Rome was not built in a day... and neither is/was Lady SOLSTICE!!

Yes, the Sydney event has somewhat subverted the original nature of the Carnival. But at least the full name now sets the scene.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney...ian_Mardi_Gras

Its become a big deal, which is fine. But at some loss of the meaning most of the world ascribes to mardi gras. That is unfortunate.

Good results at the boat today. The epoxy resin and jotafair patches were rubbed back then I vacuumed the roof, gave it a wipe down then rolled on 2 coats of Penguard HB primer. Tomorrow Iíll give it another couple of coats then thatís pretty much it till after the boat is painted when I can sand it and roll on some nonslip.

Just got home and look what was waiting for me on the kitchen bench..!!

Great job to all involved and a special thanks goes out to Aquabella for sorting out the ordering and logistics.

I wasnít really keen on it when I was sent pics but seeing it in person is a whole different ball game because it looks great.

Now Iíll have to weld on a little flag pole on the bow rail to mount it to.

Well i was all pumped for spraying gloss today. I arranged to finish work early to meet the painter at the boat. It was all going well until his water separator crapped itself halfway through the job (unbeknown to us) and fine water mist was gunned on to the final coat wrecking it. Painter has said heíll pay for the paint and prep it however I said to him to just buy the paint and Iíll sand it. Bloody sanding. I tell ya...!! Iíll be happy when I see the end of it

Have to leave it till Wednesday now before I can begin rubbing it back and start the whole paint prep again

Some days a diamonds and Some stone eh..!

As long as you own a boat and DIY the sanding saga never ends.
