4th coat of varnish

This coat was thinned just a little bit - 5% - as the rest of the coats will be.  One thing I noticed is that it took about twice as much varnish this time compared to last time.....think because the layer is thicker (less thinner used).

Something happening

Finally, just yesterday, after months of no activity, I started sanding the rub rails with sixty grit.  I looked in my reference material and noted that 120 grit is the final sanding doesn't want to go any more fine on the grit because the varnish won't stick as good.

Getting my mind in gear for starting up again - resto of the boats - as we get through this winter weather things will begin to happen! for it!
