The Starling Project - Part 26

The center support for the splashboards has been glued and screwed into place.

The first coat varnish has been applied. I will apply one or two more before flipping the boat over and fiberglassing and painting the hull. These first one or two coats of varnish are mainly to protect the deck from scratching, marking and staining.

There is no sheen on the deck after this first coat. The thirsty wood just soaked up all the varnish. Varnishing is nice work and a reward for all the hard work of filling and sanding.
