Skeedeen 2020 6


I got started by sanding the new varnish I’d put down last time, including the windshield patch repairs; handrails; forward hatch frame; anchor platform; helm trim; companionway; and the engine box trim.  Once the sanding was complete, I vacuumed and solvent-washed as needed.

Later, after final preparations, I applied another coat of varnish to these areas.

In the time between sanding and varnishing the trim on the boat herself, I worked in the woodshop to clean up the shop and benches and vacuum and solvent-wash all the companionway and loose trim parts that I’d sanded earlier.  With things thusly prepared, I applied a coat of varnish to the back sides of the louvered companionway doors and the companionway hatch covers.  I left the remaining small pieces for another time.
