This past month has seen lots of varnishing. Many coats of varnish getting thinly wiped on, inside and out. Hull and trim. Each scupper painstakingly varnished with a rag wrapped around a popsicle stick.

There are no pictures. The boat is just getting shinier and smoother little by little.

I’m using Varathane water based ‘Diamond Wood Finish’. The outdoor version, and full gloss. It’s very nice to work with as it cleans up nicely with water and doesn’t stink. But it goes on very thin. So many applications are required. It also dries very quick, so you can get a couple applications on in a day.
