Sanding the entire boat deck? I must admit this wasn’t my favourite job working on the new sailing boat. But the result shows: It was well worth it. I’m loving the new look of my Laser.
Das ganze Laser Bootsdeck abschleifen? Es gibt echt schönere Arbeiten am Segelboot. Allerdings kann sich das Ergebnis jetzt richtig sehen lassen.
Sanding the boat deck
But first things first: So after I applied the gelcoat I sanded it down again to get a smooth surface – before painting the deck. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out as well as it looks in the following video which I shoot with my GoPro … Because somehow the sanding machine died. And I wasn’t even done with my work yet.

I might have guessed
The sanding machine, which I borrowed from my dad, didn’t come new. But still it had been working properly. Until the following started to happen again and again: parts of the machine fell off. And in the end I had to warm up to sandpaper again.
