MinWax on a boat
I keep reading posts about how people hate having to varnish the woods on their boats, both outside and inside. Is there anyone out there who has tried Minwax rather than Varnish?
Minwax makes a variety of finish products that go on really easily. I have used the Polycrylic product on some old furniture I refinished for the house, and it turned out great. They do have a Helmsman spar finish.
The reason for my question is that I have to finish all of the new marine plywood I have put insidemy boat. New bulkheads, bunks, V berth. It is a Shark 24,so not a real expensive cruising boat. I just want it to look more finished and am trying to figure out the easiest way to get a nice finish. Since no one has ever mentioned using this type of product on this forum, I figure there must be a reason for it. The stuff is so much easier to use than varnish...I know, there are no short cuts when it comes to boats,but could this be a viable option?
