During the day, I finished up most of the remaining sanding work, starting with the starboard eyebrow trim and coaming, then working around the taffrail before moving on deck to hand-sand the handrails and various coachroof trim. Later, I sanded the cockpit coamings and surrounding trim, leaving only the hard-to-reach pockets at the forward ends of the coamings for later attention–my hands couldn’t face any more just then. I’d also have to finish up the anchor platform, which I’d not yet touched. But the bulk of the prep was complete, for which I was grateful.
