I'm calling the carpet done - a little delam caused by crappy ply in need of a repair but otherwise done.
ply blister delam: a little tinted resin needed to seal this up again, easy fix
board storage zone: lift them off, wax up and go!
Remind me NEVER to try yacht varnish again - its been a nightmare. After all the attempts to get a smooth glossy coat I've ended up with a board heavier (three coats...) than I wanted and a bit of a patchy look as it still needed sanding smooth. The sanding residue stuck to everything, me included and made me look like a janitor from a porn set. The yard floor is splattered with the stuff.
It will look fine waxed.
From now on I'll stick to sanded epoxy.
final weight = 16lb which is 4 over target, heavy handed resin as well as the varnish I think. Roll on a wave or two for getting it wet.
