Re: Pearson 36
I tried varnishing all the fake wood laminate surfaces on my previous boat (Paceship PY23) after a (very) light hand sanding with very fine grit sandpaper. It improved the look/feel somewhat but still left a lot to be desired. I believe I used a satin varnish. Perhaps gloss would yield better results.
