Porthole repair no 3
21 April 2007 | Mort Bay, sydney Harbour
Mostly fine, some rain
Then I primed the steel with high build epoxy primer and topcoated with high build two pack polyurethane.
The portholes were refitted with lots of silicon rubber.
Hopefully no leaks.
I masked off the area round one of the deck hatches to keep the silicon rubber off the paint, but when I pulled off the tape the expensive polyurethane came with it. I should have allowed more cure time for the epoxy and sanded it down wet before topcoating.
I have noted the need for an antisyphon fitting. Will be fitted as time permits.
Estimated total time : 1025 hours
