The varnish has been on for over a month. I wasn't entirely pleased with the results so I took some 1200 wet and dry sandpaper and did a little wet sanding. Then some rubbing compound, some rubbing/polishing compound and then finally some polish to the deck. It's still not a glossy finish like fresh varnish, but it is a perfectly acceptable satin finish and it is ssssmmmmoooooooooth.
Also, the bottom paint is on.
You'll have to excuse the sanding reidue on the side in the photo.
Bless the open minded people of the world. LP
Boat design is like a bed with too small of a blanket. Daquiri (sort of)
