While the boat is upside down, I finished the underside of the cabin top and the aft side of BH#3.The first step was to sand all areas to be varnished. I also taped off the area where I will be mounting backer plates. I contemplated over mounting the backer plates before varnishing, but felt I needed to mock it up properly (from the top side) to determine the proper size and placement of the backer blocks. So, I’ll finish these areas later. I like the look of a satin finish. I am using System Three Marine Spar Varnish in satin for all my bright work. Beautiful stuff…well worth the cost.
Ready to flip the boat right side up and place on trailer.
