Once upon a time I too had a varnish
fetish. All those wasted beautiful clear PNW days wasted varnishing my life away. An old timer once stopped by one day and remarked, "you'll get over that BS once you hit the tropics". A few years later sitting in the Galapagos I watched the varnish
peel off before my very eyes. After the 3000 miles to the Marquesas more and more varnish
disappeared......Once In New Zealand I heat gunned off that crap with extreme prejudice. Now a local mfg outdoor house stain works wonders. I love varnish
, especially if it's on somebody else's boat.
SWW914 sorry I'm not there to buy you a taco and beer and maybe hit you upside the head with that varnish brush, don't do it man! Set sail soon or you'll be a varnish slave!
