I am painting the interior of my Annapolis Wherry now and have masked off the gunwales, seats, decks, breasthook, and quarter knees. I have brushed on the first coat of Interlux Pre-Kote.
My question is, do I need to pull the masking tape and re-do it with each coat? Do I just leave it until I have finished my final coats of paint?
I will probably do a second coat of primer in a few spots, but so far the first coat is sanding out smooth as a baby's butt. Then I will be applying 2-3 coats of Epifanes Monourethane topside paint. I am just afraid that if I leave the tape on through it all, it may tear the edge of the paint layer when I try to lift the tape.
