Re: Wooden rudder n dagger board

The center board & rudder are probably varnished now. If that is so then it would probably be best to coat the bare spots with a spar varnish rather than polyurathane. Varnish is the traditional finish over those Mahogany wood pieces.
Having said that, I'm sure that a good polyurathane coating would serve to protect the wood.
Congrats on your Sunfish; great learning platform.
