The two long side trim pieces from the coamings still were in the rough, so I sanded those through the grits to prepare them for varnish.  Then, I lightly sanded all the already-varnished bits with 320 grit paper, vacuumed and solvent-washed everything, and applied varnish to all the small parts.


Next, I stripped the starboard toerail and eyebrow, and the short center section of the eyebrow amidships that I couldn't reach from the staging.  Afterwards, I sanded the starboard side with 80 grit to match the port, and then continued through 120 and 220 grits on all the stripped wood on board:  toerails, eyebrow, and anchor platform.  This left the windshield and helm-area/companionway trim still ahead to strip and sand.


I cleaned up the mess from stripping and sanding, vacuumed off the boat and surrounding areas, and then solvent-washed the bare wood and adjacent areas.  Then, I masked off the toerail and eyebrow, and, at the very end of the day, applied a seal coat of varnish to these areas.
