Determining finish for Lancer C&C 30

Howdy!

Iíve got a new-to-me Lancer C&C 30, ~1977-80-ish.
The wood finish is in mostly good shape, but there are a few spots that are abraded which Iíd like to sand and refinish. I donít want to do it all, though. Iíve poked and searched, but havenít found a good source for what finish was used on these.

Do you have any suggestions for what I should do if I wanted to sand and refinish only a few elements of the Ďvarnishí, or any idea to find out what the original finish was?

Thanks much!

Re: Determining finish for Lancer C&C 30

I'm going through this now on my late 80's C&C 30-2, my boat is hauled out for the winter. I brought home all of my cabinet doors and assessed what would be the best way. Sanding and refinishing cabinet doors on a comfortable workbench is great but I'm thinking replicating that with all of the fixed pieces on the boat that it might not be such a good idea. So I cleaned all the surfaces with TSP (trisodium phosphate), then I coated with a light colored maple stain and wiped it off after about 15 minutes. I then gave the doors 3 coats of Interlux Goldspar Satin varnish sanded with 220 grit between each coat. The doors look great and by not sanding I'll be able to repeat the process on board with all of the non-removable woodwork. I do have a few stains on the fixed woodwork that I'm not sure TSP will remove or not.

There is a very active C & C owners group. Google is your friend.

I misspoke- this not a C & C built boat but a Lancer designed by C & C design group so previous suggestion of C & C owners group info I do not think applies.

The word youíre looking for is Ďapologizeí. In your rush to be Ďrightí and righteous, you made a mistake. You also didnít read that Iíd already searched.

Iím not angry; Iíve dealt with the internet for decades and I was an arrogant ass myself once. Itís a lesson each person learns (or doesnít) on their own time.

But this is a learning opportunity. Is the thrill of being a smart ass on the internet worth being snarky at strangers?

Thanks, this is great advice. Iíll try to find a stain thatíll match, and Iíll see what a TSP or borax clean does. And resist the urge to sand and refinish!
