Remember those daily washdowns we’ve had going on here on KJ? Well, the constant reminder of things that need to be done, coupled with the guilt of lazily fishing for a few days, kicked me in the butt on getting things done.
I am proud to announce that:
A) My decks are oiled and not leaking at all (and we certainly would have known after yesterday’s downpour)
B) My deck prisms are caulked tightly and no longer leaking.
and last, but definitely NOT least, C) my varnish is smooth and glossy enough that you can see the reflections of the clouds overhead! I had no faith in my varnishing abilities whatsoever, given that I’ve never done it before and also that I have a strong tendency toward impatience. But I took reasonable care to sand, wipe, and varnish…and voila! It looks rather nice if I do say so myself. I’ve got the starboard forward half of the boat done and we’ve got nice weather predicted for the remainder of the week. Hurrah!
Search pager went off and running (it’s Sunday night ~ our “rush hour” as it were), so I’m off. But I’ll be staying in base as the token pregnant chick…
