After Liam and Oliver measured and cut some beam plank scraps to form the base of the mast step, Scott had a quiet night! Alone, he sealed up the trampoline lacing holes in the beam web, as well as the dolphin striker holes.  Then he sanded the top of a beam with 180 grit and tried brushing on a coat of clear satin System Three WR-LPU polyurethane.  Though it won’t have the blinding gleam of glossy varnish when the sun hits it, it looks mighty fine and should last longer with less painful repairs and re-applications.
