While varnishing various components I found once again that I had time on my hands. This is because each coat of varnish takes just minutes to apply, but has to be left overnight to dry.
So I decided to restart work on the companionway and tabernacle, which would save time in the future.
Here I have applied a third coat of primer to the companionway hood and the tabernacle.
And here is the companionway slide receiving the same treatment.
The primer was rolled on and tipped out with a foam brush, which is now my only method of application.
