There are those that own the boats and there are those that work
on the boats. I'm the latter. One thing I've learned is the old definition for boat
Break Out Another Thousand.
So my problem. I was tasked with refinishing teak
rails that had been neglected for many years. Exposed in many places (No varnish) with quite a few black spots. This is also my first time doing this. I heat stripped and then sanded until it all was quite beautiful. Wiped several times with Epiphanes thinner per instructions. Waited until afternoon on each coat so as to insure wood
was dry. Weather
was also quite dry and for a long time. Used Epiphanes varnish
and thinner. Followed instructions to the letter. 50/50, 75/25, 85/15, etc. Five coats later and the rains came. Im in Eastern North Carolina
on the Trent river. After many weeks I now have black patches under the varnish
. Very frustrating.
Where did I go wrong?
How would you have done it?
What should I do to rescue
Thank you for listening.
