This is what the boat looked like for the past 10 days. I took every sheet I owned and covered up the books and all the other bits we have stored, extra sails, tools,dinghy wheels, etc. It was a losing battle trying to keep the sawdust off of everything, but the sheets did help. We took all the cushions off and stored them in Bob’s truck.
I have two coats of varnish on and it is not coming off. This is the view of the pieces of the cabin sole I can remove and my work area behind the boat, thank heavens for the wall. They look pretty good from 3 meters up. They will be a lot better than they were so that is what counts I guess.
Bob and I went hiking yesterday morning. We scrambled up the first hill and then found a path leading us to the top of the next peak. It was a gorgeous day and the views were stunningly in all directions. We marvelled at the many varieties of cacti, large and small and some were flowering.
When we got down I hurried off to a local beach to support a march for women against violence. They hadn’t even started the spearheaded when I had arrived and it was going to be 40 minutes until the Zumba dancers and an hour until the marched. I purchased a t-shirt and left a donation and scooted back to the boat to put the second coat of varnish on.
