After pulling apart the companionway hatch and trunk assembly, I decided to strip the paint off the trunk and hatch to check out the wood. This is what I found:



Isn't this Honduran gorgeous?



I think I'll leave it bright. Just too damned pretty to hide.

I got the first coat of CPES on the Port cabin side and finished the forward port cutout repair, except for a bit of smoothing.





I'm filling the checking with MAS and wood flour, after a good CPES bath to slow down further deterioration.

I'll be sealing the deck and doing more epoxy work (small details) today.

The hatch looks really great, which varnish are you planning on using? If it was me, I would epoxy the hatch also and then varnish.
