Newport Beach will kick you out and never let you back if you mess you boat up and make it look ghetto... LOL seriously, clean it sand it and urethane it and you'll be accepted in the snob knob neighborhood of Zooport Leach

It's a couple pieces. Yes, sand it and paint it. Or stain it with a dark stain. Whatever you do, it will wear off in a year or two, so who cares? Your boat, your call. Keep expanding your horizons. It's been fun following your sailing adventures.

Cheers,

Steve

Re: Redoing wood in black...thoughts?

I chose low maintenance black starboard for some rails and trim about twenty years ago and it still looks new. My 1973 boat is not the most traditional design that carries a lot of brightwork, but it's well kept and far from a "ghetto" boat as posted above.



I've been liveaboard cruising since 1972 and I haven't done any brightwork since the late 1980's. I keep some nice wood below. Part of my choice is due to being at a lower latitude.
