is of the cabinet under the chart shelf & TV area on an Antares
44i. As you can see, the finish is irregular - some dull, some satin or shiny. We're not sure how that happened, but we'd love to hear from other Antares
owners if they experienced this, and how they fixed it.
We've been told by one very qualified woodworker who has worked on Antares, that the factory finish on this boat (a 2010 hull/2011 splash date) was probably polyester, applied with many coats, one on top of the next without sanding
, then the final finish was achieved with motor oil
and bronze or steel
Has anyone seen a similar unevenness of the finish, and do they know how to solve the problem?
Thanks for your ideas!
