Attacking this refurb on all fronts now. Spars are out and getting repaired. The stay sail boom end was rotten and a new piece of spruce has been scarfed into place. Moray has made a new galvanised end fitting. Slowly we are getting there.

The main and massive boom is sanded back ready for traditional varnish. There is no point spending money on Coelan on stuff that I can varnish from the deck. The end here need some work too, as rot was setting in where water ingress got behind the roller reefing fitting. That is off being dipped and the boom end repaired in epoxy.

The big job this weekend is to strip back the mast. Coelan primer and 1st coat would be good.
