Charles River Primer

by Steve on May 21, 2012

After four coats of primer on the Charles River she’s as smooth as she’s going to get. The old planking is buckled and fairing the hull completely would have removed too much wood. High-build primer, with lots of sanding in between coats, helped flatten out the smaller bumps. Initial coats get hit with the random orbital sander and 220, being extremely careful not to take the high spots down to the canvas, but the final coats are hand-sanded which makes for a nice arm and shoulder workout.
