I replaced all the white plywood around the sink with Starboard. Stripped and sanded the teak. Used Crystal Varnish on the teak and put everything back together.

I also lowered the counter so I can varnish the teak without having to worry about the counter top. Should make it easier in the future.

Looks great! The 32xx is a great boat - offers more than most boats that are much bigger.

1989 2650...an ongoing restoration...but I'm totally clueless...It just happened to be running the day this photo was taken.
Isn't owning a boat always an ongoing restoration?

It's under the sink! I would like to replace it with a pull out flex hose. Haven't got any good ideas on where to get one.

Has anyone replaced theirs?

Gordon, Is this just crystal varnish on raw teak or is it stained first?

It's on raw teak. Since then I bought new teak for the co*k pit rail. I used two coats of Smith's Penetrating Expoxy for the base coats. The SPE or any expoxy doesn't have UV inhibitors. My experience is that once done you have to keep up with the maintance coats every year. If you don't it starts looking really bad and you have to sand and scrape to raw wood and start over. Then 5 or 6 coats of Crystal.

After one season, the epoxy has a shade darker finish and is much more durable. The areas of just varnish does show some ware and tear. The first coat epoxy areas don't show the ware and tear.

Someone gave me a sheet of teak and holly. I cut it to fit under the sloon table. Talked to a bunch of people and they recommened MAS epoxy. Seems the epoxy is the most durable. MAS has a web site with videos on applying their epoxy. MAS is thicker but they recomend alcohol as a thinner. I haven't put the floor down yet. Looks like it's for next season.

I don't think their is any way to do wood on a boat easily. It takes alot of work and time. I wanted mine to look really good, so I spent the time and effort.

I've seen Epifanes on boats. It looks good and alot of people like it.

The mirror finish was what I was after. When I first joined the BOC, someone stated the only way to get the mirror finish is to spray it. That's what I have found. I haven't been able to get varnish to flow with a brush to the mirror finish. From what I've seen and learned the viscosity of the varnish is the key. The viscosity will change hour to hour out in the sun light and the humidity.

The other key is to follow the manufactors instruction.

The cost wasn't that bad! I shopped around. Fisheries wanted $200 for a half sheet. They said it would have to be dropped shipped from Florida. I ended up buying it at Interstate Plastics in Kent, Wa. $200 for a 48+" X 96" sheet. I had to buy the full sheet, but they did cut a 30" 3/4" piece off of a full sheet for the top. I used less than halp and plan to use the rest somewhere on the boat.
