Time is not on my Side

With the combination of cold weather, family nuttiness, snow, and a myriad of other things going on right now I haven't had much time to do anything on the boat, but with the warm temperatures and a reasonably light schedule today, I took the afternoon off and finished up the second coat of fairing compound on the decks surrounding the cockpit.

With about three weeks off I was a bit out of practice with my frosting technique, but the moderate temperature (around 60F) allowed me plenty of work time to get things reasonably smooth.  I'd still rate it about as the most difficult section because of all the edges, corners and troughs that I have to work around.  Nothing a bit of sanding won't take care of though.

With more holiday craziness to come, I probably won't get too much done over the next few weeks, but if I'm able to carve out some time, I'll be starting to sand everything down for primer (in the spring and after more touch ups).  The epoxy season is officially over now so after the sanding I'll be tackling the toerail and a bunch of other project to be determined over the winter.
