Queued for Final Finsh

Estrellita was moved this morning from her home for the past year to the short queue in line for applying finish coats. Fabrication of two fiberglass propane lockers in the stern quarters and new fiberglass cockpit locker hatches is nearly complete. (No more dinky leaky pressed board hatches.) Replacement windows will be installed when the final finish has been completed.

Forty years of spider cracks in the gel coat and paint were removed down to bare fiberglass then hours and hours of fairing with 2-part epoxy before applying primer after which hours more of  filling, sanding & primer coats.
