Skeedeen Phase 7-4


Starting early, I lightly sanded the first coat of varnish on the windshield, handrails, forward hatch, bow platform, and other trim on the boat, preparing it for the second coat ahead.    Afterwards, I vacuumed and solvent-washed the prepared surfaces and nearby to remove dust.

I had to leave the shop for an appointment, but upon my return I tacked off the wood I’d sanded earlier, then spent the remainder of the day applying the second coat of maintenance varnish to all the on-board trim.  I didn’t have time to continue with the doors, hatches, and other trim that I’d been working on at the bench, but would resume work there next time.

Total time billed on this job today:  3.25 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  Fair, 46°.  Forecast for the day:  Mainly sunny, 53°
