Oh my aching back.
Much as I love my brightwork, that's varnished wood for non seafaring folk, or indeed, folk on boats with no varnish, two or three days of scraping, sanding and varnishing doesn't half go for my dodgy back.
Adding insult to injury, there's a significant risk of sunburn. Shear murder down here in Possum Land.
A long time ago, my dear old dad told me that to get a high gloss, mirror like finish it was essential to use a sanding block.
Next time I think I'll settle for using a sanding BLOKE and just pay him what I'm about to shell out for a remedial massage.
