Re: Applying Cetol Natural Marine Teak

It's worth a shot, have had mixed success myself. And that's assuming this is only for small touch up areas, not anything major. Take it back well into the 'good' finish and follow JimsCal's...

It's worked great for our deck hardware, but I'm looking to rebed the toe rail next (teak to fiberglass) and I'm reading conflicting information.

Re: Block choices ... so many options

Rub strake for sheets/halyards?

Looking to protect some of our cockpit bright work when underway. The lines in question aren't under tension, but still tend to chafe.

Re: USCG Documentation Renewal

Paid online on April 29th and received the renewal certificate on May 4th.

Extremely disappointed in the new tax, but begrudgingly have to admit the turn around time was outstanding.

Re: Replace Edson chain-wire setup

Not sure how you got to $700 unless you're looking to replace the sheaves and quadrants? While still not cheap, chain and wire kits from Edson are around $300 +/-.

Re: Rub rail oxidation.

This works very well to clean up the rub rail (not sure it will get rid of the chalk like surface though). Move quickly and don't spend too long on any one spot or the acetone will begin to gum up...
