Varnish recomendations

I am interesed in anyone who has used Interlux''s Perfection Varnish. I am replacing a fair amount of mahogany on my Ensenada 20 (trailered, and stored under cover). I am strongly leaning toward Perfection, as my boat will be somewhat protected from the elements the majority of the time.

Any feedback, including any other recomended products (or ones to avoid) are more than welcome.

Thanks. Doug

Interlux 95 seems to be working great... At least, for the exterior.

I put it on my sole and am REALLY pleased with the ease of application, high gloss and anti-skid properties. No connection...just a glowing recommendation

Varnish recomendations

A little behind the ball here , I am new to the group.

I use McClosky''s "Man-O-War" Spar varnish on our 50 foot wooden ketch. It looks great on teak especially. I have used the interlux stuff but find the Man-O-War to have a better, traditional (somewhat red) color. I think it spreads and levels out in fewer coats than the interlux. And it is under 20 bucks /quart. Really, I think you can have "Perfect" varnish with most any product provided you have an excellent first few thinned coats and many gloss coats on the top. When we bought our boat to restore, we sanded everything to bare wood, then put on 8 coats. We have never been sorry for all the work.

Go2Marine.com sells the Man-O-War stuff.
