A sand and varnish day. Our beautiful and beautifully finished teak wheel took a beating this winter. One of the bikes had been leaning against it during one of the weekly storm thrashings we had in Oriental. With the rudder moving around from the waves, the wheel turned back and forth and all around for several days. It was dinged and chipped pretty badly and neither one of us really wanted to take on the huge amount of sanding it was going to require. Steve finally bit the bullet and started on it. Not to be outdone, I, too, took up the sandpaper and started in on the aft companionway hatch. The teenage kayakers were back again this afternoon, so we had some comic relief while we sanded. Fortunately, Adjima, the IOE, was on hand to make sure it all went well. She is quite a taskmaster.
