Slow but sure progress on the boat hand sanding with the long board. I'm gradually flatting out he high spots mainly concentrating on one side of the boat for now so I can see more progress.
The orbital sander left a smooth surface with scratches in all directions. The 70 grit glass paper is leaving a smoother finish with scratches going inline with the grain so it's quite easy to see the low and high spots now. I'm moving randomly about the hull so as not to take off to much material in any one place.
Anyway thats all for now, Onward.
