Paint Problems on the Unalga

There has to be an interesting story behind this one, found in the bottom right part of this log from the USCGC Unalga. As transcribed by Old Weather user Hanibal94:

“Unable to read barometer and thermometer on account of fresh paint.”

… how does that happen, exactly? Someone either goofed or didn’t plan ahead! And now we’re missing a day’s data on account of it. Shame.
