Re: [SabreSailboat] Varnish question
- Joe -I feather the varnish toward the bungholes, so each coat ends a little farther away. I finish sand the entire piece before mounting. I trim the bungs close and minimize sanding the piece by using a small block to sand the bung. Then I feather the varnish outward from the bung, with a final coat of the entire piece done in place. It's a royal PIA, but if you want a varnish finish, you gotta go there.It also multiplies the pain when the varnish eventually goes south.There's always Cetol :)PeteOn Mon, Mar 11, 2013 at 4:22 PM, <jay4868@...> wrote:
I need help with with a varnish issue that has bothered me for years. I have spend great care layering multiple coats of varnish on several removable teak pieces over the winter. Now when I reattach these pieces in the spring I will need to cover the screw holes with bungs. given that process how can I install the bungs flush with the piece withour sanding off a good deal of the 8 coats of varnish surrounding the bung itself? It seems like every time I do this I end up ruining a perfectly fine varnish job. Any suggestions will be most helpful.
