Direct sunlight and applying varnish, oil, cetol

The label on the can and the info on the website say that Cetol should not be applied in direct sunlight. I couldn't find anything to this effect on the labels for Pettit or Epifanes or teak oil and...

Thanks very much for the feedback and suggestions. Very good ideas. I've put a sign in the marina, too, I'll start making a mental or even hard-copy list of things. Some of it is negotiable, of...

Re: Boat Share Ideas Please

Thanks everyone for the very positive feedback on this idea. I was once in a full partnership with two other people and that worked very well. On the other hand, a friend of mine ended up having a...

Re: Liquid or 'thin' caulking?

Just a quick follow up. I used Capt Tolleys last winter and spring and found it very effective. Used it to seal around a couple of screws in the cockpit lockers and a few other places. As long as it...

Re: Power tool for sanding toe rail

Cabinet scrapers: When the surface was easy to get at and not concave or convex, a cabinet scraper worked very well IF I set it up the “hook” just right. When I got everything right, the old Cetol...

Re: Power tool for sanding toe rail

Oscillating tool with triangular sanding pad (like a Fein or a Dremel). This actually worked well too. The small tool is easy to handle and the motion does not lead to sudden slips. It will slip off...

Re: Power tool for sanding toe rail

Heat gun with putty knife and paint scrapers. This worked very well. The heat gun softens the varnish and sometimes causes it to bubble and lift. Scraping it with a hand-held paint scraper is very...

Re: Power tool for sanding toe rail

Thanks to all those who made suggestions regarding the toe-rail. I eventually tried out a heat-gun, an oscillating sander and cabinet scrapers, along with the usual paint scrapers and sand paper. I...

Power tool for sanding toe rail

Going to tool stores is on my to-do list (always drool when I go) but I was hoping that someone had 'been there done that' successfully.
