Re: Varnish

what about the transition from the patched areas and the old varnish? How can I hide them? To I add one or two coats to the whole deck ontop of everything?
Thanks

Re: Varnish

what do you mean by patching?
Remove the existing varnish only in patches, or don't remove it at all and just sand and apply the new coating?
The general idea is to keep the boat for as long as possible, or forever!
So making sure not to damage the wood is very important!

Re: Varnish

wow,
thanks for the very detailed answer.
I'll have to check back with the previous owner but as far as I know they used a 2-pack varnish.
thanks 1000times

Re: Varnish

Hi Folks I want to renew the varnish on the deck of my '72 Bianchi e Cecchi FD. The deck was completely restored (remade) in 2008 and I haven't touched it since. In general it still looks quite good, but when looking closer the varnish has cracked on certain spots. I organized a workshop this winter...

Re: Looking for a Classic I14

Hello there


It has been a while...
i am still without a classic 14!
I do love my '74 italian Flying Dutchman I sail at the moment, but a small restoration project of a "real" classic is still what I've set myself to do.

cheers

Looking for a Classic I14

Hi there I'm new here. I've been looking for a classic International 14 for quite some time now. Had my finger on a number of boats but either someone was quicker or it didn't work out for some other reason. A restauration project (not too bad condition please) or a sound looking boat would be ok. t...
