The interior paint was complete, so I removed the masking tape. Sometime towards the end of the project, I’d clean up the remaining interior areas to finish the work list there.
After trimming the bungs from the new toerails, and lightly sanding all the new wood, I masked the wood to prepare for the varnish coats. At the same time, I masked off the glossy deck areas so I could move forward with nonskid paint, now that the toerails were complete. At the stem, where I’d created a wider band of the glossy white paint, I marked a new 1″ border–to match the others–according to the contours of the stem cap, and sanded the area within to prepare for paint.
After final preparations and cleanup, I applied a coat of nonskid paint, a custom mix of beige and white (50% each).
Then, I applied a coat of varnish to the toerails, and to the handrails in the varnish room.
