King of the Mississippi varnishing (Moved by moderator)

Recommended Posts

Al Sieffert, welcome aboard.


I would say based on my experience is get the deck done, planking done. Paint if you are painting anything, and then varnish the deck and hull. Then as you go, varnish any deck furniture and accessories, etc.

I would also check any build logs in progress or complete to see when they were at the point of varnishing as well. That may give you a better idea as to when.


Also, start a build log so we can follow along and give advice when needed.
