YES , but as there is loads of work to do if I come across a product that does it now and in three I won't be proud.
There is a magic product that does just that

It's called paint


(and I do also like varnish ).

Hi Mate,
It's my belief that sailors are born and not made. I know people who have been sailing for years and still seem to have no clue and others who walk on to a yacht and just get it. Have you heard of Chay Blyth? he attemped to be the 1st person to sail round the world nonstop,solo and unassisted in 1968(?). when he left harbour he had not sailed even once. He had a friend sail next to him as he left so he could watch and copy them as they put up the sails. Not that I am suggesting that you do that. By all means learn all you can but remember common sense is key.
Happy sailing

No, but I've dealt with my share...

Re: Would You Critique a Boat I Am Looking at, Please ?

Well, someone got her. She is sold .....

Good luck to the new owner and if he /she is reading do tell about your adventures restoring her . Glad she is coming off the hard finally.
