Varnishing a Boat = Brightwork

IMG_0606
 

Weeks have gone by since my brightwork dude started the job.  By the end of it, he desperately hated my sweet little boat.  So much wood, so much sanding.  Poor guy. 

But, all's well - he's finally done and the wood just gleams. It makes my heart swim just to look at it.  Piece by piece it all comes together - and when I get back from my upcoming shoot on the East Coast, I fully expect my mechanic/all-around handy man to have ripped through his list of Enola projects.  To the sheer delight of me on the road.

Life is good.

I came across your site after doing some research in chb boats. I'm looking for a boat also? Do you recomend these boats? I was also looking at one of their trawlers. I'd like to live on it too.
You're a great inspiration!

Sweet ride girl.

I can smell the sea air, and feel the spray on my face.
We still need to be close to our old home.... the ocean.

Ex varnisher

Now that you have all of that nice, shiny (and expensive) varnish laid down, it's time to visit the marine canvas shop and get covers made for all or most of it; preferably before it rains.

That Sunbrella fabric with all of those snaps (no Velcro!) will pay for itself in the first year or so, sun and moisture are mortal enemies of varnish!
