I’ve been on the road for the last several weeks and unable to track our nonskid and gelcoat repair project. But, in my absence, I had some photos taken to track the progress and now I’m back at the yard.

We left off in part 4 with gelcoat Jim sanding away to prep the surface. Once the surface was down to fair and smooth, the boat had to get masked off to identify the new surface perimeter. Here are a couple of shots to see how that looked: (notice the blue masking tape)

Once the preimeter is defined, the whole boat is going to get covered outside the masked off area. Next will be the application of the new non-skid surface. I’ll get that your way tomorrow, so stay tuned.
