Bright Work

Sunrise this morning

Bright work is boaters lingo for all that is required in caring for the wood on your boat. Sanding old varnish off, sanding the wood smooth, applying varnish over & over. I'm not sure why it's called "Bright Work". There's nothing bright about it. It sucks actually. I guess the "bright" moment will come when it's all shiney & polished. Right now it's tedious, dusty, & tiring.

Can't wait to show all the "after" pics!! We're on our 3rd day of sanding. Scott thinks we will be able to varnish tomorrow or Tuesday.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Love & Miss you. I have to get back to sanding.

Sanding begins at 9am on Malaika
