Willy, The Walters is a REALLY neat museum! I've been there a few times, and it amazes me that much of it is the collection of one family.

Bubble, the boards look good. What did you use?

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

Ouch - you had to bring it up...

Re-powering (beta 50), replumbing the fresh water system to add foot pumps and a sea gull filter, adding solar panels, rebedding a couple of port lights, adding radar/chartplotter, refinishing some interior teak, install HF radio (incl tuner and antenna), installing lee cloths, modifying a locker for line storage, and a handful of minor things.

Should be enough to keep us busy for the winter! Anyone wanna help?

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

So far, I've only managed to wash one little piece of canvas. Holidays are too hectic. I tell myself, I will dig in after New Year's. Next thing I know, its Mar 1 and I begin commissioning for an Apr 1 launch and I get a very small number of things done in what really amounts to 60 days from Jan 1 to Feb 28.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

Jimgo-

I applied 3 coats of Cetol Natural, followed by one, liberal coat of Cetol Gloss.
The Gloss topcoat is to provide UV stability to prevent the Cetol Natural from changing color, and gives the wood a nice bit of shine.

I am NOT going for a 10 inch deep gloss coat. The boat is not a Hinckley.
I'll settle for going from "crap" to "much improved".

Cetol has a gotten a bad rap over the years, for its funky, orange color. Newer Cetol products like Cetol Natural, and Cetol Light look fantastic, and are nearly as durable as Interlux Perfection for a fraction of the cost.

The initial application is a bit of a pain, but the annual maintenance is much easier than traditional varnish. That, and the cost is why I chose Cetol.

Paperbird-

What kind of boat is it? A new Beta sounds nice...except for the work and money involved.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

Bubble, I used Cetol on my old boat and really liked it. It's a good compromise between easy to use and durability. But my question was actually about what kind of wood you used on the boards!

Oh...sorry.

Teak. All the pieces I've done so far, are teak.
I am considering making a couple of small speaker boxes out of maple, and finishing them with Cetol.

I have no idea if that's a good idea or not.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

I've removed yet more wood for refinishing.

My boat had the original, teak cabintop grab rails. The port rail crumbled in my hands as I removed it yesterday. Total dry rot. I have brand new replacements for these, and wasn't trying to save them.

I am encountering a little frustration with re-bedding stanchions and the bow pulpit. I bedded them in butyl, but the fastening nuts backed off quite a ways, on several of these pieces, so the hardware moved on the deck, and a little water dripped in anyways.

I am obviously going to have replace the nuts with nylon-insert nuts, or at least add lock washers to maintain tension on the nuts, to keep these deck fittings secure.

Any comments?

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

Not sure if your stanchion bases are like mine but chances are good they are (1967 Tartan).
My stanchion bases are essentially hollow which leaves a huge volume of area where lots butyl would have to be jammed in to bed the base to the deck.
Besides the lock washers I am thinking about removing all the stanchion bases (6) from my boat and filling the bases with epoxy to make a flat surface for bedding to the deck. With new backing plates these should be water tight.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

If you are going to seal the bottom of your stanchion bases are hollow and you seal them up, be sure to drill exit holes for water.
