Just ONCE I Would Like Something To Go Without A Hitch!!!!!

So do you remember the other day when I was SO happy that the primer was down....

Well Today I spent most of my time RE-SANDING the primer because the idiot (me) who originally sanded the epoxy sealer didn't put on didn't sand it well enough and the primer refused to stick.... Grrrrr.




Now I just hope I have enough primer left over to touch up the places that I sanded....

I also got most of the bootstrap sanded....


We will see how things go tomorrow...

Yesterday I finally purchased the track that I need for the main mast. This track will be in place for the storm tri-sail. This means that it will be left at the bottom of the mast in a sail bag and can be raised with having to remove the regular mainsail.... Good thing too, cause' when a storm is rolling in I really don't want to be fooling around folding and stowing the mainsail....

One last thing, I contacted the paint company today and found out that I can  paint one coat of bottom paint now and apply the second one in the spring... That is if I ever get the primer sorted out....
