Dyer 4

< Back to Dyer


After a light sanding and cleanup, I applied a second coat of varnish to all areas in the boat.

The spars for the sailing rig, along with the oars, rudder, and daggerboard, were in  generally good condition and appeared little-used.  The brightwork on these items was in sound condition and required only maintenance coats of varnish going forward.

After removing the tiller and lightly sanding the rudder, I found a crack in the wood near the top, so I made a small repair with epoxy and clamps.

I lightly sanded the spars, oars,  and other pieces, then applied a coat of varnish to them all.
