I'm laughing because Mark cracks me up. I was sanding away, getting the stained portions of the wood to a silky finish when Mark stated that I was making enough progress and doing a throrough enough job that I might actually be allowed to varnish the brightwork on the boat. This is funny because if he doesn't let me take care of the brightwork, it will never get done and if there is one thing Mark hates its messy brightwork on a boat. So with his workload, he has no choice but to turn it over to me. Me for the win!
