Decided to re coat the stern and Edwardo continued polishing more trim and parts. Keyed the stern with 220. You will see where I was coating it just past the middle. Took me about 10 min not includingthe prep work. Have to move fast with the Awlwood.

Should be my final coat of Awlwood. In just over a week I have a fairly complete varnishing project. Ill be polishing some of this because there is too much airborne debris in this building and you can feel it in the finish. Also what I have in my hand is left over awlwood that solidified in the pot over night. Notice how the product is completely clear. #Awlgrip #AwlwoodMA

— at Crowley’s Yacht Yard Lakeside.
