Thanks for the welcome, Dave! Always a pleasure to see you. Been out and about traversing the Keys but back in Port in Boot Key Harbor. Should be here throughout hurricane season. Hopefully I'll get over here to Seaknots more often now! Big Hugs!

Hey Gang, I've been spending quite a bit of time taking the old varnish off of my boom and interior cabin. Being based in Alaska, we have big temp swings (-10 to 75 F), and I'm debating just teaking all the wood and holding back on varnishing it. The thought would be that I would just have to apply more teak oil to it every time I went out, but I wouldn't have to deal with the varnish peeling so bad again like it's doing now.
