Applying Awl Grip to Our Cabin Top

It is finally done! Muahahahaha (evil laugh)… The painting is finally done!

After 9 weeks of work, removing all our old Petit (2 part EZ Poxy) paint, building up layer after layer of primer, and trying my hand at Awl Grip for the first time, our paint on the cabin top and cockpit is now complete. 3 coats overall, and she’s looking good!

We also had the travel lift come to hoist us up a few feet so we could reblock to be able to remove the old paint and put new paint where the blocks had been sitting. The centerboard also gets removed for our painting…and it’s our first chance ever to see it!

Cheers from the work yard!

One thought on “Applying Awl Grip to Our Cabin Top

  1. Great job Jessica. So much pulling for you guys. Anxious to see you start sailing. That swing keel is so much larger than the one I once made for my son’s Irin 10-4. The reduced draft requirement will allow you guys to get into places other boats can’t go. I am enjoying watching your progress.
