all the kings horses

It is warm here for a winter day, but not warm enough for another coat of varnish.  I sanded most of the varnish I put on yesterday, finding in some areas where I had layered it on too thick the varnish had not completely set.  The sanding and next coat of varnish will have to wait.

I did put the new 5 and 1/2 inch stern deck cleats in place, pre-drilling and then coating the silicone bronze screws with white silicone sealant.  I do not have time today for the cleats on the foredeck.  This most likely concludes the boat work until I return from a trip to the west coast.

This inside of the boat is a mess.  I should photograph it and put the picture here, but I won't - it would be embarrassing.  Tools, saw dust, bags from the hardware store, baggies of hardware and boxes of screws.

I've got a ways to go, but Spartina is slowly coming back together again.

Truly a labor of love.
