Preparing to paint

Today I made myself and the boat ready for painting. First I cleaned out the garage.

Then I planed the keel pieces to align with each other.

Stem to keel joint, after planing but before sanding

After that I cleaned the amine blush of the whole boat and sanded it again...... I was hoping to start painting today but I found a few areas around the stem and one scarf joint that needed some more fairing. So the painting will have to wait for tomorrow.

I lit my barbecue with some Sapele shavings, it smelled really nice but gave of a lot of smoke so do not think I will be doing that again.

Time today: 3h
