    The pleasure of redoing the brightwork-gctid364541

    I love combining woodworking with boating.

    Spent yesterday afternoon sanding the teak in our cockpit. It was beat up and greyed out and did not look good at all. Sanded her down and she already looks better!! Soon a bunch of epiphanes will get her looking proper. :arr

        Oh wow, what a difference in the photos 'before' and 'after'. Or more accurately 'during'. She is looking really good, my friend!

          It definitely looks better. What do you plan to treat it with?

            i just took the ladder steps, and little wood inserts off the boat to re-do again. I hate brightwork!

            Id rather just have all fiberglass as I find it a lot easier to just polish. Although when completed the woodwork does give it that nice finishing touch.

                Well compared to my trawler, our 4550 has just a smattering of exterior teak so it feels a lot easier to take care of.

                I used Epiphanes "Wood Finish" on my trawler and I liked it. It is like Bristol finish but is not a 2 part finish but, like Bristol, can be installed with multiple coats a day with no need for sanding in between them:

                It's a good hard finish and I personally like it better than cetol and on my trawler I found all I needed was a refreshing coat about once every 12-18 months.

                      That looks really good.

                      I did mine a couple years ago, it turned out nice also. Now it's time to touch up some spots and add a few coats before it gets to the point that I'll have to sand it all down to raw wood again.

                      Being a professional Cabinetmaker obviously makes me a lover of wood.......but...... I gotta tell ya that sanding is one of the last things I want to do on my days off.:thumb
