Varnish, paint and bolts

The gaff and foot-well floor received another coat of varnish after a light sanding. The cabin tops had the first coat of enamel. I have decided to paint the cockpit, cabin tops and fore-deck separately, rather than doing it all as one big job.

The holes for the bolts to attach the removable tabernacle are re-drilled and counter-sunk, after having filled the holes with epoxy some time ago. These four 8 mm bolts, the inside doubler and the ‘brackets’ on the outside of the bulkhead, will hold things in place.
