After building up the varnish on the new ribs and planks the entire
inside is sanded . Sanding between the ribs of one of these boats
requires a few days , and a high threshold for boredom.
After varnishing the inside I noticed that a lot of the old
floorboards were rotten .I have an old device casting that I laid in
the boat to fit new floors around . After the new floors are finished
the boat will be turned over again to varnish the outside .
