Today was varnish day — one coat of Epifanes on everything that needed varnishing.
Fisher helped me with the skiff, then we moved onto a new coat for the Shaw & Tenney oars, the boom crutch, the tiller ….
That big rhomboid thing is the centerboard. It needs its bottom half coated with anti-fouling paint.
A few more days and I should have the skiff ready for the water and the first race on Friday the 4th. Short week ahead, I’ll be on the Cape. Tempted to declare the whole thing a vacation week but I’ve got too many things on my schedule to churn things around.
