HNY all, I am trying to work out what is the best kind of varnish (or other material) to apply to the wood around the inside of the sliding door area on my 331. It is the only area of internal wood that is looking tired / stained / sun & salt bleached.
Reading up on varnish – there seem to be quite a few different types / concoctions. I just wondered if there was a “standard” Nautical brew I could buy?!

“A. The varnish inside the boat we have used and still use today is International Gold Spar Satin.
Underneath we use Hempel’s Favourite, 4 layers.
The main thing is that the old surfaces are well sanded and all damaged varnish is removed prior to new varnish.
B. Outside we have used today Epifanes varnishes. First some 4 layers of Epifanes Clear Varnish (first layers well thinned) and on top of that one layer of Epifanes Wood Finish Matte.”
Sorry for the delayed response but it has taken me this long to find where I put this bit of information.
