I don't have pictures for most of progress this year so far, but in summary: sanded down last year's primer coat on the bottom of the boat, faired\fixed a bunch of imperfections, sprayed more primer, more sanding, got it down to 150 grit and looking (and feeling) pretty good.
At that point my son helped me flip the boat over, but to be honest the weight of the boat took us by surprise and the boat bottom dragged against some of the tent frames as it rotated on the way down, leaving some minor gouges, I need to fix that later.
Once flipped, more sanding, spray primer, more sanding. My goal is to get some paint on this thing before I go back to work, but the weather is marginal and I may not make it.
Removing the foam core around the windows and filling it with epoxy is a catchup job that I left for too long, finally finished it up:
Sanding around beam mounts is a chore:
Took me about nine hours of sanding today to do the entire upper half of the boat. Feels like most of my expensive primer ends up as a dust cloud - thank goodness for respirators. Nice to see it with a more uniform color:
