Nice and shiny

Well, the sanding is done and the varnishing is underway!  It is always a really satisfying process to start with the dull sanded finish and instantly see the final result.  I have two coats on and will apply a third later in the week.  Overall, I am happy so far.  It isn't perfect, but I'm getting better.  I only wish it wasn't at the very end when I am more impatient to get it back on the water.

I have ordered the final parts for the new gearbox, and I'll get hopefully make progress on this soon.  The weather has been perfect for boating, but I guess having nice weather for varnishing isn't a bad thing either.
