Upper Hull | First Gloss

When the upper hull was fully sanded smooth, I applied the first coat of gloss.

As with the primer I rolled it on with a 4" foam roller and tipped it out with a 4" foam brush.

Here is the boat after its first coat of Ivory White, seen from astern.

More coats of gloss followed. Here is the same view after the fifth coat.

I know you can't see any difference in the photos, but it does improve in depth of colour with each coat.

I glossed the tabernacle and drop boards at the same time. Here they are after their second coat.

No more priming to do - that's it!

Five more coats of gloss and she will be ready for wet sanding to the final finish.
