COAT ONE March 29, 2010

Well, finally got the sanding done on the spot areas and the first coat of varnish on those areas. Not bad. Have a lot less spots this year then last year. It took most of the morning to sand and do the clean up and tack. Ate lunch and mixed up my brew, tacked the second time and put the varnish on. Tomorrow and Wednesday are suppose to be as nice as today for working, high of 67 degrees. Can not beat that. It could be a little less windy. It will blow about 10 kts for awhile then it will blow 15 plus for about 10 minutes. I got lucky and was able to get the first coat on during one of the lulls.

The plan is to put 3 coats of varnish and then 2 coats of Bristol and then a final coat of Bristol on all the bright work. Will be happy when this is done. If the weather forecast is correct, I may get it all done this week. That would be a new record. I will still have to do the rub rails, but that is just a coat of the clear Cetrol. That is easy enough to do.
