Re: Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk

That's pretty wide coaming. If you step on that, I would not want varnish on it. How are you treating after you're done? I've gone old school, let it weather and grey, other than a few accent pieces. If you go grey, just let the varnish flake off over time. Time = couple of years.

To your question, sanding is your best bet. Personally, I'm a random orbital guy. Belt sanders require experience and can get you in trouble fast. Rent an RO if you don't have one.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
