    David, what is the white-ish thing that you were putting on the hull?Report

    Wouldn’t it be easier to paint the bottom now, while it’s still upside down?

      Yes, it would be and some people do that.

      But there’s an entire upper section that has to be married to the lower hull section. That has to be glass and the joint faired in, so we’re waiting to paint until the hull is one unit.

      Also, we’re going to shoot the paint with an airgun, which will make painting upside-down easier.Report
