Exciting Stuff

We have been racing to use the hot weather to get a couple coats of paint on the deck. Some of the work we have done over the last year has dropped metal shavings from drilling on the mast and boom gallows. These have caused rust spots where the metal has caught in the non-skid.

I scrubbed for a while with phosphoric acid to remove the metal and neutralize the oxidation. Then I went at it with some gray Brightside polyurethane with flattening agent. This should cut the glare off the deck.

Today it is supposed to rain. As you might have guessed, we are watching the paint dry.
