Water Damage Repair

I've got several areas of water damage in the cabin of my boat. Any suggestions on repairing it? Most of it appears to be only stained, not soggy or delaminated.

Re: Water Damage Repair

That end-grain staining is going to be very difficult if not impossible to repair. You may be able to hide it by staining the surrounding wood. The laminate should be replaced. I did this on our 1985 Ericson 35-3 a few years back. Check out the link below for more info.

Re: Water Damage Repair

Paint is about the only way to hide water stains like you've got. Happen to like the 'Hereshoff' style, painted flat surfaces with varnished wood trim, of interior finish. You can try a wood bleach like Oxalic Acid but wouldn't have much hope in removing that kind of stain.

Re: Water Damage Repair

Ok. I'll probably end up replacing it eventually then. But seeing as I've got a looooooong list of other more important repairs to do, it'll probably be awhile. I might try staining it to cover it up some in the meantime.

Re: Water Damage Repair

Replace the wood.

Or get rid of the (varnish, oil, whatever), then bleach with oxalic acid, then wash, then revarnish. Washing is of prime importance here.

I'll give that a try first. If I can save it, great. Id rather do that than have to buy new wood.
