Planed off the window blanks, sealed the join with a little epoxy. Just needs a light sanding and I think the varnish will disguise it pretty well. I also need to route out a rebate for the glass and then fit the bronze bessel.
Painted the rest of the ribs and put in some temporary floor boards for climbing in and out. Less tripping over stuff
It took more than a coat of paint.
Deck beams all primed and the front two varnished. I'm looking forward to lying in the forepeak berth with a lamp lit looking up at the old varnished oak against the new white painted deck boards.
