    Finished rails on 32xx-gctid466102

    After stripping with heat gun and scraper, I hit it with 40, 80, then 120 on the belt sander. Wood was rough, had deep cracks, and I wanted it to look smooth. Probably took off up to an 1/8".

    Also had to level the adjoing pieces since there was some rising and I was only able to tighten them down a little.

      Then I hand sanded it with 180 and 220 and filled the holes. I used teak plugs but that was a little work as the drills I was using chipped the wood. Not to mention small screw holes had to be drilled big enough to fit the plugs. A boat neighbor gave me a tip that worked well. Clear epoxy mixed with teak saw dust. It worked better, was easier, and matched better since it was the same wood. This is after 2 coats of cetol. The two plugs at the bottom are the epoxy/saw dust ones. The other is standard teak plugs.

        Another shot after 2 coats of cetol natural teak. I might just do one more coat and leave it. Not sure if Im going to also do the gloss coat.

            I threw them in the dumpster at the marina where I bought the boat. They were grungy.

            Im going to fill the holes then maybe just stick white vinyl on with adhesive.

              Nice job! Looks great and I learned something. The epoxy/sawdust tip worked really well.

                    We are in the process of doing the same thing to our 3218. Same process as well w/ Cetol. Yours looks great, thanks for the epoxy/resin tip! We are going to have a friend that does custom upholstery re-do our cushions with new wood.

                      I might just get 1/2" thick foam, wrap it in white vinyl, and stick it on with velcro. That way I can peel it off easily if necessary. I don't need it, but it don't look pretty with all those holes and the rough unfinished edge at the bottom.

                        Wow Green650 that is beautiful! Nice work. Can you describe a little how you made the epoxy/sawdust plug filler product? Was it a 2 part epoxy like a Smiths kind of brand and where did you get the teak dust? How did you mix it together for the correct mixture? EDIT-- Oh I just saw picture #1...now I know where you got the sawdust from......

                          Good idea but I think you might have problems with the vinyl sagging and/or pulling away from velcro. If you do decide to go with velcro I highly recommend this 3M product. "Dualock" http://www.itapestore.com/3mduallockfasteners.aspx However it is pretty easy to recreate the original finished look. You might try plywood strips as your base, or even bendy board (used to separate concrete slabs and found at the hardware store) Just add your foam, I would probably go thicker than 1/2". 1" will hide more errors and creases in folding the corners of the vinyl. Staple the vinyl to the back of the plywood and be sure to use SS or Monel staples. Also when I redo mine, which are currently white, I will probably change the color to match other blue vinyl on the boat. Here is a pic of 1" foam used on an interior panel.

                            Yeah, there was plenty of sawdust from the beltsander.

                            I used regular 5 minute 2 part epoxy from home depot. Probably about the same amount of saw dust as epoxy.
