Bigger Gun..MUCH Better Results!! (MJ Sailing - Ep 289)

After failing last week with our spray gun, we trade up, and CAN'T BELIEVE the great results we get!

After having primed the v-berth and bulkhead 5 last week, we continue aft in the guest hull, working on bulkhead 6, plus the hull leading to the guest head. And since the owner's hull has a lot of completed portions as well, we prime the areas between bulkheads 5 and 6. We switch over to Colby's gun to spray, and it makes a WORLD of difference for application.

Based on the multiple different colors of fairing compound and guide coats on there, it's amazing what a difference that first coat of primer makes to tie the area all together. This was also our first chance to cover a daggerboard case and get a feel for what the finished product will look like in the space.

We also had the chance to go see the Blue Angels fly in Annapolis. Each year they come out to perform a show for the Naval Academy's graduation, and each year so far we've found ourselves squinting and trying to catch the show from Kentmorr.

So this year we put ourselves front and center on a friend's sailboat, right in the middle of all the action. To be able to see it first hand was quite the experience, and we know we won't be able to watch it from afar again!
