Re: Remove Varnish from Teak Caulk
I have varnish on my coaming, but it doesn't cover separate media with different expansion rates along the same coating. It's not a good idea to use varnish over teak and caulk alike.
I do understand that and I will take these suggestions under consideration. However, the existing varnish has been over the teak/caulk joint for many years and there was no failure that I could see. The reason I'm stripping the varnish is that it had not been maintained so i let it go until I had time to re-finish.
Again, I do appreciate these comments, but the purpose of my thread is to get suggestions on removing the varnish from the caulk. You and others have offered suggestions and I welcome them all. But... ITS GETTING VARNISH!
