Bruce and I spent most of the day on the ship sanding, cleaning, and varnishing the forward rail on the poop deck.
Definitely better than it was.
We’re out of le Tonkinois (I neglected to place an order for it), so I used the Z-Spar Captain’s Varnish that we have on the ship. I must say I like the smell of le Tonkinois better. Oh well, I’ll see how it turns out. Hopefully, the rain will stay away and I’ll be able to put on a second coat tomorrow.
I watched OSG’s Overseas Nikiski arrive:

Maybe OSG would consider making a donation to help out an old tanker?
