I sanded down the epoxy I used to patch
the edges of the deck plate holes.
Then used a shop vac to clean up dowel trimmings,
saw dust and chunks of paint.
Next the decks were wiped down with moist paper towels,
an imperfect attempt to clean up the mess from all the sanding.
I will visit Spartina in the garage, but for now
the work is done. Sanding, epoxy work and
painting should begin sometime in March.
Sailing, hopefully not too long after that.
