_______ THIRD AND FINAL STAGE OF FAIRING BEFORE PAINTING _________
Shipmates, I hear you ask: "How many photographs of the final fairing stage of a Zephyr yacht does a person need to look at?" - Well the answer is four photographs.
The previous post showed the hull with its first fairing compound combed on. These photographs show the hull after micro light fairing compound has been applied, sanded fair and two coats of 'two pot' Everdure applied.
When you run your beady eyes over a recently coated glossy hull any imperfections are very easy to see. I was heartened to find the hull fair and true with only minor imperfections
The final stage is a regime of sanding between undercoats and the application of a glossy final coat.
But before that happens the hull will be turned the right way up and the new deck, splashboards and other trim installed.
