Upside down.

Here is the first coat of varnish on the hull. Just more of the same, high shine and seeing every tiny blem. The blems will diminish as depth of the varnish builds up with the wetsanding inbetween.

I was real close to painting the bottom with high build primer and black paint, figuring the hull will take a beating. It is part of the challenge I suppose to try to get a good finish with brightwork, so I will save the paint for when the kayak needs to be refinished later on. Hopefully it will see that much use.
