Cabin sole finish

I am building a solid teak and holly sole in my boat and want a thick finnish. I have seen this type of finnish on tables that is poured on and dries very thick and clear. Does anybody know anything about this?

Hi Dennis, the stuff you want is called kleer kote. Its mostly used on bar room tables and such. I just used it to refinish my tabletop after putting a chart and ship wreck coins on its surface. Its a 2 part epoxy, works and looks great. (shopmaninc.com/kk121.html)...........Rick

P.S. its very important to use a hair dryer or heat gun across the surface of the kleer kote after it has been brushed out across the surface to burst small bubbles...remember that....I believe the web site has instructions on application to that effect too......Rick

Hi Rick,
Thanks alot! Yeah, thats the stuff. I''ll get back to you and let you know how it turned out but it won''t be completly done for a while because I am a long distance truck driver now. (and thanks for the important tip).

Now.... I''m not a painter so let me ask since you''ve used it. Do you think this product is suitable for this use?
thanx

Dennis L.

P.S. you can be an awful painter and still come out with great results with this stuff.. its thick but as you glop it on and spread it out and heat it alittle with a heat gun, it just thins and levels out beautifully. Just keep everything clean before applying....Rick
