Teak refinishing and repair

The most practical materials to use, are the simple ones. I recall when the ''thanes'' started coming out; all the johny-come-latelys were running around with oooh and aahhhh and a year later they were going OH NO!! Sikaflex....there''s another one. If you need polysulphide, use polysulphide, don''t go get some fast dry right out of a tube air cure whale snot!! use polysulphide. It''s known as the black death for a reason! USE IT! Varnish is VARNISH. Don''t screw around with a formula that''s easy and time proven. Regular Man''o''War can be gotten anywhere and cleans up with thinners. Other fancy things a VERY SPECIALISED, require special thinners and weather conditions, and prep techniques that are not the domain of the casual wood worker, and they are not worth the trouble anyway. Plenty of new owners run out and get in over their heads needlessly, then don''t do any follow up/ You''d be better off using a product that''s easier to handle in all ways, and then STAY ON TOP OF IT!! That is the solution, maintenance!! You can''t use some fancy complex material to absolve yourself from the need to do regular recoats. Think about it. Rev. Mike

Mike, when you say to etch your last coat before adding a new coat, what do you etch with? I am not familiar with paint etch. Does the thinner recommended for the varnish work, or is there something cheaper? I don''t see you mentioning taping before varnishing. If you do tape, then washing with hose makes the tape difficult to remove after final coat. Please reply directly to rwp8989@aol.com as I do not frequent this board. Thanks. Ric

Yes, Groundhog- You really should check dates before replying.. if he hasn't finished his varnishing by now... he's probably in trouble.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I thought Practical Sailor gave Eppifanes good marks. What do you use to "etch" the previous coat with?
