Cetol on the caprail

Wild ass guess: How much cetol should I purchase for 3 coats on a Crealock 37, starting from bare wood after stripping? Planning on doing it on my vacation and I don't want to come up short. Using Silkens Cetol. TIA

Re: Cetol on the caprail

Might as well get a gallon, the stuffs not gonna go bad if you keep it sealed and you will need more next year anyway...

You also may find that if you scuff sand after the third coat and put two more on it'll really brighten up the woodwork...

Consider topping with at least 2 coats of Cetol Marine Gloss.

FYI... Cetol Natural is much nicer than the original orangy tinted one... followed up with a few coats, usually 3 of gloss and you should have a nice finish.

Re: Cetol on the caprail

The stuff, gets thick in the can if you don't use it. I heard about turning the can upside down when your done and you reseal the top. that way the skin forms on the actual bottom. I've yet to try that trick myself but will be soon!

1qt of each ( color and clear gloss ) natural teak looks really nice as well as traditional, the light I would stay away from

3 coats of color and 2 of clear should have more than enough to do your caprail

Re: Cetol on the caprail

On the Cetol can the instructions recommend 3 coats of Natural Teak (superior to the other flavors IMO) and 2 coats of the clear Gloss. 1 day to cure between each re-coating.
If you don't want to run out I'd get 2 qts. of Natural Teak and 1 qt. of the gloss. I doubt you would use it all but I don't know how wide your cap/toe rails are.

Everybody has one:

Yep, 2 clear coats; and REMEMBER the maintenance coats are done with clear only, no color.

This is were people go wrong, they use color on maintenance and that when things go ugly

Re: Cetol on the caprail

I used 2/3 of a quart of "Natural Teak" to do the caprails (3 coats) and rubrails (6 coats) on our 34. This was from bare wood.
