Continuing the process on the thwarts and rubrail, I went through the normal routine:  sand, clean, and varnish, this time coat #3.

Two of the three spars looked good after their maintenance coat, but the third section required another coat because of a couple holidays that I’d missed.  I also applied a second maintenance coat to the oars, tiller, and daggerboard pieces, all of which had been a bit more beat up to start with and benefited from the additional coating.

The minor repair on the rudder was complete, and after a quick sand to smooth the glued seam, I applied a coat of varnish to the rudder as well.
