I have three coats of varnish on the Guillemot. It was so much easier than I thought it would be. It looks great !!! It has some rough spots, but I am not worried about that just yet.

I will put the kayak in the water this weekend, ( 4th of July ). I will let the varnish get good and hard over the next two weeks. Then I will sand it baby butt smooth with 400 grit sand paper. After that I will put the final coat of varnish on .

My next post will be at the lake. See you all then.

    Great job! I will launch my wood duck hybrid tomorrow with 4 coats of varnish and I plan on using it the rest of the summer and then finish coat the duck in Sept/Oct when the weather is mor compatible. I can't get my yak into the basement so it is in the garage and too hot now to get a great finish. Can't wait to paddle it. it looks great from 5 feet!
