Picking up where I left off, I continued stripping the brightwork on the port side, finishing up the outboard side of the coaming and the eyebrow trim and handrail on the cabin.
I moved my operation from the staging to the deck itself so I could continue with the remaining brightwork on the cabin top and inside the cockpit. As with all the other wood, this woodwork was in basically good condition beneath old and weathered layers of Cetol.
During the rest of the day, I removed the old finish from these remaining areas, completing the raw stripping work on deck. A few removable pieces, such as the swashboards and cockpit table, remained to be done, but I could do those on the bench anytime.
