Deck sanded

Two days of scraping and sanding sees the deck down to bare wood at last. With the deck ply so flexible, it makes the stripping much harder. I’m happy with the results so far and am now happy that we can go with a bright finish and not paint.

The part of the deck at the transom has been glassed, so that will remain as is. However, when the time comes for the application of anti-slip, this will get treatment. Because of the wings, after a capsize, you climb aboard from the transom, so some grip will be required here as well as mid-deck area. The foredeck is a no-go area as the ply is just 1mm thick.

Hi Oztalis,

Glad this unique old timer fell into the hands of the right person at the right time.
Sanding and re varnishing was a good decision.
You seem to advance in this project with determination to get it out on the water.
Can't wait for some footage showing you blasting upwind (I sail Minisails and these are notorious bad performers upwind)
