Fine sanding and three coats of marine varnish applied with 3 more to go. Hull sanded back, faired and Epifanes Bootlak applied. Still not 100% hap...

Re: Minisail No 10

Just starting the renovation of MS10 and would really appreciate some CVRDA advice. The boat is very sound, including the decks, but due to some discolouration in the varnish I will strip the deck back to bare wood.
