I am considering the purchase
of a Bristol 35.5. The interior
is almost 100% teak
, and about 70% of the teak
is in great condition. The other 30% which includes the edges of some of the cabinets, chart table and floor looks as though the varnish
has been scratched off over the years. I believe the varnish
finish is original as the owner states that he has never touched it in 17 years.
So my question is how do I make the interior
look new? Can I simply sand the wood where it is exposed and touch it up with a few coats of varnish followed by one coat over everything or will this look blotchy. Or will I need to strip the entire interior to get a uniform finish?
I prefer and oiled interior, which is incredibly easy to touch up. How difficult will fixing the varnish be and how good can it look without completely striping it?
