Re: Refinishing wood

David Graybeal
 

There are four typical ways I recommend.

1. Paint - An opaque film finish. Give up on brightwork, and bask in the luxury of low-maintenance. If, of course, you don't mind giving up the beauty of wood.

2. Spar Varnish - A clear film finish. The most gorgeous option. Also the most maintenance... and most skill to get a good result. My personal go-to brand is Interlux 'Schooner' #96. But don't stress about the product, they're all pretty good. As a part time varnisher - it's more important for you to pick one of the  brands that's easy for you go lay your hands on. Then get used to that one. Get good with it without having to adjust to a new brand each time.

3. And Oil/Varnish blend -  This is the easiest to apply. Wipe on, wipe off. Unless you put ungodly amounts on... you won't build up a film. So it's now QUITE as protective. But neither is it as fragile. And it's so easy to touch up I think that more than counterbalances the benefits of a film. Not glossy, though. My favorite is Daly's Seafin Tea Oil.

4. Sikkens 'Cetol Marine' - A highly-engineered two step product. First the color coat, then the gloss topcoat. Much easier to apply than Spar Varnish, but not as easy as the Oil/Varnish blend. A very good compromise. I like the 'Natural Teak' flavor. Skip the oriiginal... it'll give you flashbacks.

 

Let us know what you choose.

Critical application issue:  Whatever clear hard finish you use it has to have UV filters added.  The sun is the enemy of varnish/verathane clear finishes.  Otherwise, there’s several available from Captain’s varnish to ….. dang, can’t remember what it is.  Not varnish but made for boats.  Various folks swear by various finishes and it kinda depends on what you like for application.  Varnish coats that “last’ are often six to ten coats……just sayin’.  I used Deks Olje parts one and two on Passage back in the day but it’s soft and can be scuffed easily.  On the plus side it’s very easy to apply.  Coat on coat, no sanding.  Many options, so little time…..what I have found on a boat in the water is the days you want to be out sailing you’re applying varnish.  Trailerable boats obviate that issue so it’s better.  Best of luck!

So I need a little help. I'm refinishing all the exterior wood on my Potter 19 and trying to figure out what finish I should use. It looks like teak or mahogany or some dark reddish wood. It's very weathered and faded now. Looks like it was oiled rather than varnished in the past.  I would like to make it shinny but not sure varnish or varathane would work. Need suggestions.  Thanks

Changing horses between Tuffy and Lazy Jack would be no problem before the event. Both fit the bill. We would just need to know before the final roster to CG.
