Varnish and linseed oil

It must be spring! A tin of varnish is out to spruce up the woodwork, the parrell beads are out of their soak in linseed oil, ready for re-threading, and there is also the customary innovation or two afoot (more of that in a later post). The recent cold snap in the UK put paid to any early season Easter sailing, but the time for the first “wet” of the season approaches. This season, I will again be concentrating on quality rather than quantity, with a trips to new waters planned, as well as a return to familiar anchorages. Here’s to the ’18 season!
