Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

mayhem, it's really amazing how far a little bit of varnish goes towards improving the overall cosmetic appearance of a boat. while stuck on board during a nasty low pressure a week or so ago, i addressed a nagging varnish problem of my own. the trim around the inside of hatches gets a raw deal: lots of salt spray and UV when open and lots of condensation when closed. couple that with being a cruiser and interior brightwork, and it's a recipe for neglect, at least for me.

last picture is with first of 5-6 coats, however many are needed to get that smooth, "deep" appearance. it was something i had put out of my mind but refinished, it really changes the entire feel of my salon.
