Re: Buying a 30-40 year old boat - your opinions

One of the respected authors on brightwork is a woman: Rebecca Whitman. http://www.amazon.com/Brightwork-The-Art-Finishing-Wood/dp/0071579818You can always learn.

Actually she is kind of a varnish maven and makes finishing with a varnish seem quite difficult. I gave up on varnish and gave in to the Cetol Natural Teak dark side as it is much easier to keep looking good. Goes on more like a paint and a lot less ju-ju needed for it turn out right.

Maybe I'm not that crazy about doing brightwork either!
