Preparing for the work ahead, I set up staging around the boat to make it efficient and comfortable to work on the toerails and other brightwork, which would be one of the main focuses of the project. With deep draft and fairly tall topsides, I had to cut blocking to raise the planks a foot or so above the 5′ maximum height of my existing staging supports. I completed the staging around most of the boat, except for the last sections at the bow since I needed to move some stuff in the shop to make room.
