Prepwork for new rigging

The rigging is in the works and will be put in place soon.
That means Ocean Wolf needs a touch of paint here and there.


The awl grip system seems to be the best. Although to the novice it is also a mighty complicate layer cake of primers, anti rust, filler, top coat, etc. All are some sort of epoxy that needs to be mixed from two components in various ratios. Oh, and one layer of each flavour isn’t enough, so multiple need to be applied with sanding before each layer.
Our current marina has an ‘awl grip application center’. I imagine this is ran by experts in white lab coats that finished a doctorate in advanced paint mixing and application.
That said, once properly applied the awl grip promises to keep the ship protected against the elements for the foreseeable future.
