One hull getting close to finished bottom paint

We've gotten pretty close to finishing the starboard hull.

The "before" shot.  All the loose and damaged bottom paint removed.

Duane sanding....with goggles, gloves and respirator  of course!  (sander is hooked to the vacuum to reduce any nasty, toxic dust).

 After washing and wiping with denatured alcohol,  first coat of marine epoxy primer to fill any large voids left by the sanding.

Second coat of epoxy primer.

First coat of bottom paint - just a few hundred dollars for that first gallon!! 

And the second gallon makes it almost done!  Just a few areas that we need to "touch up" and this hull will be finished.   Now on to hull number 2!!
