Cockpit Varnish On

There has been so much traffic in the cockpit it has been quite hard toget it varnished. Well the varnish is on now. 7 coats - but really for exterior areas with high wear on a boat you need around 15+ coats - oh well. This will do for now.

I have added a copper band on the coamings. This is a high wear area. The copper band is a bit "bling" at present but will verdi gris nicely. I have, ofcourse, use bronze screws - brass screws are of no use on a boat as they will dezincify within a year and you will eventually have to drill them out.

Note: Always place a power drill on its side when not using it!
