Beginning of Internal work.

Today I began 'varnishing' the inside of the boat:




As you can see, I only varnished one side at a time as I have to be inside the boat to do the varnishing, and can't kneel in the wet varnish to do the other side.
   
Before varnishing I had to go over the planks with Tack Rags/Cloths. For those unfamiliar with these items, let me explain. I buy the articles by the box, and inside the box each rag is independently wrapped in an airtight envelope.

Box of Tack Rags (or Cloths), an airtight envelope, and a Tack Rag 

The cloths are impregnating with mildly sticky 'stuff' to which all dust on the woodwork sticks, without leaving leaving a deposit on the wood and leaving the wood ready for varnish.

Tomorrow I'll do the other side.
