After my usual round of light sanding, vacuuming, and cleaning the exterior woodwork, I turned to the final section of the cabin sole, at the aft end in the galley. Reserving the small hatches (along with several other small pieces from other parts of the cabin) for later attention down on the bench, I stripped the old varnish from this last section, completing the raw stripping task. The next step would be to sand the surface, but I’d await that till I completed the exterior varnish work.
Afterwards, I applied the fourth coat of varnish to the exterior teak, which was now starting to look pretty good.
