Great work John. I would guess this is not your first varnish attempt. If you can get a finish like that with the roller, I would keep the sprayer on the shelf. Is there any way you could make a short video of your rolling process for us?

Greetings! I apologize if this is obvious, but the purpose of the Ash stem strip?... Is that cosmetic or is it intended to be a ware and tear piece that can be easily removed and replaced in the future? That's the first I've seen this, generally I see the cutwaters, so I'm curious! Thank you, Shane!

G/day Neel yes my first ever attempt at varnish i did view a lot of YouTube videos to get some hints and i thought i would give it a crack as i could always cut it back
G/day Shane yes the ask is pure cosmetic and it is a pretty tough timber and i will put a small D or C mold down as well .........John

Thanks!
Well, I really like it! That Ash stem strip really sets off the front of the boat! I like this approach better than a cutwater, so I may be "borrowing" this little customization! :D

G/Day Shane yes i had made cutwater but i think the bow shape is to modern for it so i choose the Silver Ash, just make sure you have it wet i put it between the 2 trailer guards with a small rope in the middle on it pulling it down when it was raining here and it kept the bent shape so went down the stem well or steam it .........John
