another winter coat
A surprise high of 63 degrees today, warmer than expected and a perfect day for another layer of varnish, the fourth. I hooked the trailer to the jeep and pulled Spartina out of the garage to get the full effect of the warm sunshine.
While the outside of the hull is looking better, the inside is still a mess. Tools, sandpaper, dust and just about everything else.
Six weeks until the start of sailing season. Six weeks to do three more coats of varnish, touch up the white deck and top plank, touch up the sea green of the hull, wire the new trailer lights, repack the trailer wheel bearings and load the gear back on the boat. Sounds reasonable to me.
