Varnish

The first coat of varnish, i.e. glossy exterior marine grade PU, has been applied to the cabin roof, sea-hood and slide. The Tasmanian Oak (E. obliqua) comes up quite nicely, and the timber matches the plywood panels very well. Some of the customisations can also be seen in the photos:

The doubler on bulkhead 2, which is already drilled for the bolts for the removable tabernacle.

The blind nuts on the Dorade boxes to screw down the cover plates with the air vents.

The butterfly vents inside the cabin.

The lip on the aft of the slide to cover the top of the (removable) companion way doors.
