Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Getting ahead of myself. While aft cap rails were removed to glass the aft deck, they were stripped clean and epoxy sealed front and back. Then reinstalled and coated with many coats of WEST and a bit of 407 for final fairing. Then sanded fair to 180. Then four coats of 545 and sanded to 400, THEN Awlgrip.
