In a short day, I continued work on the various varnish projects inside and outside the boat. Inside, I sanded and varnished anew the (formerly known as) bare trim on the berth fiddles and a small secondary shelf in the forward cabin, as well as the inside of the companionway trim and one of the interior panels from the head area.
Most of the small trim pieces from the cabin, including the cabin sole sections, now had enough base varnish that I could switch to the final finish, a rubbed-effect satin varnish that I’d be using throughout the cabin in due course.
I rounded out the day with a project-related errand, but meantime there was little else I could do to advance the project. I anxiously awaited a box of original Sailmaster hardware, purchased from another owner. to replace some of the old and damaged bits that I’d removed early on in the project so I could start reinstalling the deck hardware soon.
