Boatyard Progress

Ciganka’s hull is completely sanded, cleaned and starboard side is painted.  We had to rig up tarps to keep the sun off the port side.  Because the steel hull is cold in the morning and the air is warm, the hull sweats….condensation.  So we cannot start painting until the hull is dry which is usually around 10:30 – 11:00.  But the problem we have with the port side is by this time the sun is shining on it which makes the paint tack up as we roll it on.  Sooooo…..we tied up tarps to shade this side of the boat so the paint flows nicely.  It is all looking really good!Boat yard 2014 022 Boat yard 2014 024 Boat yard 2014 026
