Now that our boat is on land for the winter I was thinkig about varnishing the interior cabin walls. The cabin walls have been oiled and stained and now are dark. Any suggestions?


Thanks

Are you really wanting to varnish, or just bring back the finish? If the latter, we've had great results with Mark's (Brandywine) recommendation to use Howards. Wipe on, or gently use very fine steel wool for really scratched areas. Follow with Howards feed'n'wax.

Ours came out great.

Phil: I wrote a long post about (8 months ago) on how I varinished the interior walls (2 coats)and the cabin floors (3 coats). I feel that varnishing makes for a much brighter and cleanable interior, especially here in Florida. BUT- The previous owner had neglected the interior and the orginal oil finish was bone dry and was quickly removed with a palm sander. If trial sanding doesn't produce dust or gums up the paper, using chemicals to remove the bulk of the oil is a nasty proposition. Keep us updated. Larry
