I managed to find time for painting a second upper coat over what I painted yesterday. The finish is a lot better, and of course, the paint will preserve the wood from the sun’s rays and moisture from condensation within the cabin. Condensation can be a problem with a Paradox, on account of the large area of her windows. Matt’s design incorporates drip trays below the windows. If the weather is cold, and the interior of the boat is warm when the hatch is closed, a fair amount of condensation can accumulate, but it can easily be mopped up with a cloth or a sponge.
