Latest progress.

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.
