Sand, Sand, Sand
Day 13: April 27, 2002 - 7.0 hrs
Moved the sawhorses and boat outside and sanded the entire hull with 120 grit sandpaper. Used the Random Orbit Sander for the majority of the sanding and then hand sanded the bow and stern and rounded all the seams. Went over the entire hull again with 220 grit. The final finish was very smooth and I was quite pleased. I did however go through the top laminate in one location but it is only a sliver about 1 1/2 inches long -- I don't think it will show much.
