Time to refresh varnish, that is. I noticed the top couple of layers looking “pealey” in some places on the hatch slider, so I sanded and scraped. I only removed all the varnish in a few spots, so I’ll have to build up these areas again patch-work fashion. Just not up to stripping the entire surface yet. Here are a couple of pics:
I’ll also refresh the swash-boards, anchor platform, and re-Cetol the “eye brows” and hand-holds (on deck) over the next several months, as weather and opportunity allow.
