    3888, Types of Woods-gctid383443

    I'm refinishing the Exterior Wood on the back of the Cabin and on top of the Transom and Gunnel. Does anyone know for sure the type of wood on either location? Some say it's Teak around the Cabin and Mahogany on the Transom any help would be appreciated.

    My 1987 is all the same, Teak. I have had all of mine down to bare wood. Can't say for later models but it wouldn't make sense to change woods that mated. There would be some noticable difference imo.

          our 3888 is teak inside and out.. and I too am refinishing the wood on the outside.. weathering is a blotch in southeast alaska for boats... :worth so putting my big girl undies on and baggy grubs and rolling up the sleeves to tackle it all.

          good luck on yours.. post pics when done.. I too will post as well

              My '84 was teak throughout. The little triangles by the rear windows were teak verneer plywood. Stained? I think the interior was just oiled.

                DMCB is off cruising and won't see this until autumn. You might want to start a new thread in Motoryachts.

                  Thanks for all the comments. I did find that it's all Teak. My concern was on the wood that wraps around the back deck was gray and would not clean up like the rest of it. So I removed all the hardware (and it's a good thing I did) it was rotted out. Having it replaced, found Teak in a Lumber yard near me and took it to a friend of mine who has a wood shop. The rest of the teak is in pretty good shape and is looking good. I have 2 coats on and I'm going to do another 2.
