Re: Finish for new mahogany

I can't get down to the boat today as planned, so I was googling around to see if there was anyplace closer to buy some Epifanes varnish and I stumbled upon an old question.

How do you pronounce it?

For years and years, I pronouced it Ehp-a-fanes

Not that long ago, I was watching a Jamestown Distributors video and the tech called it Ehp-i-fahn-ess. I assumed they would know and I had just been pronouncing it wrong.

I just saw a Practical Sailor article that swears the rep confirmed my original pronunciation, although, granted you could call it whatever you like, if you buy it.

So, which is it?
