The weather forecast suggested that I might have a chance the temperatures I needed to pour the epoxy countertop early in the week, so I continued some of the prep work towards that end, masking off lavishly around the countertop, and using duct tape to dam up the four openings in the countertop (stove, sink, and two storage openings).
With that complete, I sanded the companionway door trim and, after cleanup and all final preparations, applied a coat of the same rubbed-effect satin varnish used everywhere else in the cabin. Much later, with the varnish cured, I removed the masking tape and rehung the laddor [sic]. Still ahead, I’d prime and paint the remainder of the companionway opening to complete the finishing work.
