Save for the varnishing, she is finished (2 hours)

I have fitted the spray decks at each end, which was tricky. The linen is very difficult to cut, particularly on the bias. The resin clogs blades very quickly. I was also at the very end of my resin, so one deck will be largely treated with varnish, but that should do. I was over generous with resin on the outside of the hull, so I think the right amount was included. Softwood gunwales screwed on and the first coat of Tonkinoise varnish applied to the outside. I want three coats on the outside and two on the inside I think, if the varnish goes far enough. After that I just need to get a paddle and find a small, warm pond...
