Now I'll tell you all the issues.
1. It don't protect the wood from dings and scraps
2. It seems to only last about 2 to 3 months in the sun.
3. After about a week there is still a slight oil feel to the wood though nothing comes off on the fingers.
4. It is not shinny
The stuff it has going for it is:
Takes minutes to apply
One small section at a time can be done as their is almost no cleanup.
You can do a section in a few minutes after a sail.
Not fussy about environment. No rain for 24 hours, best not in direct sun for 24 hours.
Bugs, sawdust, leaves etc are all no problem.
I'm thinking that I could do the whole boat in about an hour or less. If that is true and I can get away with three times a year and it actually gets done it might be a better solution than varnish where everything has to be perfect and you have to choose between sailing and varnishing.
