Something went horribly wrong with the last layer of varnish just before the holiday (orange peel effect).

Fortunately the holiday made me forget about it and now back home, the outside has been sanded and revarnished with a different 2-component varnish.

June 30

With another holiday imminent, varnished the outside to allow it time to harden while I am away.

Deckplates and handles are varnished at the same time.

After mounting the gunwales, decided to varnish the inside before completing the fittingsas the garage was relatively dust free.

 

May 6 2009

My neighbours on both sides are away on holiday until the end of this week.

I have used the time to sand the epoxy off ready for varnishing without causing too much noise disturbance to the neighbourhood.

Sanding the inside is also not a nice job as the sanding machine does not fit around all the concave bends.
