We are currently cruising our Islander Freeport 36 sailboat in Mexico. We have been extensively documentating our Islander Freeport outfitting for this adventure. We will now be reporting what of our outfitng is of value, what works and what is not of value.
Varnishing the stateroom hanging locker louvered doors
End of June 2015 - Paradise Village Marina in Banderas Bay Mexico We are currently house sitting in Bucerias. Started varnishing the stateroom hanging locker louvered doors
These take some time to do. This one is all sanded and washed with TSP.
Putting on the first coat of diluted varnish.
No A/C in here and it is hot. In the 90's and high humidity.
Varnish still seems to do great, not me so much.
I have to be careful not to drop sweat into the work.
OK not bad :)
I put coat two on the back side also.
We will not get these two door done before our house sitting job is done. We had just too many things going at the same time, bet you know that feeling. We do (as it stands now) have another house sitting gig at the first of the month. We will then finish off these. We will have four coats on them before we start the new gig.
