Re: What kind of interior finish

I find that wiping the interior with any oil looks good for a time but eventually needs to be re done. Many oils attract dirt and make the wood look even worse after a number of years. This was certainly the case with our boat. I cleaned the wood with acetone and a scrubby, sanding lightly afterward. The finish is MinWax Satin in low wear areas and MinWax Spar Urethane for high wear areas like handholds or the table. I applied 4 coats and only wipe with a damp clot on occasion. IMO, this was far easier than applying oil each year.
