Painting ‘Minnow’s’ Spars


Today I varnished the floorboards for the third and final time. I sanded the boom and yard prior to painting them mustard, and I shall paint them again, but the upper coat will be orange.  I’ll also make the mast orange.

Perhaps tomorrow I shall reassemble the floorboards, and reinstall the bin sides. However, if I decide to replace the tatty green insulating material that lines the cabin sides, I should do so before reinstalling the bin sides.  I am not keen on green, because to my mind it does not harmonize well with magnolia which is the main colour of the woodwork within the cabin.
