Spars & Other Bits | Varnishing (2)

There is limited space in my build area and I can rarely do two things in parallel, so I moved the companionway hood and slide back into the house and relocated some spars and other bits into workshop.

Here are the bowsprit, tiller, boom gallows, gaff, boom and drop board retainers being varnished on the bench.

I applied four coats with a good brush, thinking that would be enough and would provide a good finish.

Each coat takes two days to complete because the underside is done the following day, so this was a time consuming process.
