Hi All,

I spent the better part of the winter giving her a face lift. The old hag hadn't been to the beauty parlor for quite some time. I've owned her for a little over a year. She's actually hull #141.

The table is Myrtlewood. Only grows in Oregon. The tree was over 130 years old when the slab was cut. I found it online from some guy in TX.

Here's the link:

Enjoy
Mark

Hi Mark,

Your boat looks great. What product did you use on the exterior of the door?

Scrubbed and cleaned all exterior teak with two part cleaner twice, then applied 3 coats of Cetol Marine Light.

Hi

Thanks for the compliment.

Hi Phil,

Interior Wall/Doors:
I had some pretty bad water stains, from prior leak in the roof.
First I removed all doors/trim and cleaned with teak cleaner.
For a finish I used Howard Restore A Finish Mahogany. Several rubbed in coats. It's easy to apply and will hide marks and blemishes.

Floor:
I stripped old varnish off with Jasco Paint Remover (Depot). It works terrific. I tried first to use an all natural stripper. Don't waste your time and stick with toxic grade stripper.

I sanded with 220 grit on a palm sander. I got almost all of marks dings out. Just be careful veneer can be worn in spots.

I then cleaned with Interlux thinner.

The floor has five coats of Goldspare Clear Polyurathayne.
The first coat needs to be thinned a bit. I forget how much. It will say it on can.
I sanded in between with 220 and wiped with thinner.

Table:
Like I said above it's made of Myrtle Wood.
I had a local lumber yard run it through there 24" planner. I then trashed the oval shape on slabe and cut it on there bandsaw.
Finish is same as floor. I forget how many coats. One thing I learned is that there is plenty of lint/dust in the air.

That's about it.

It was a lot of work but well worth it.

Any other questions, just let me know.

Mark
