OK, I ordered the Natural Cetol and Gloss after reading this thread through a couple of weeks ago. Then I see that Gloss can lift!
So, I am just doing companionway boards. They were originally done with Cetol light, NO gloss. They lasted 4 years and I was happy with the product. I have started the Cetol project with a first coat to one side, and am looking at a six day project to get three coats of Cetol on. I like the color so far.
Question? Other than the gloss look, what do I gain with the gloss? These three boards are in a pocket when not in use. They do rub together, but the old Cetol finish looked just fine for the four years. I am not a varnish snob obviously, so please give me a reason not to take the gloss back to the store if there is one.
