Cockpit coaming

One of my first projects on the Gulf was to remove the canvas covering the teak cockpit coamings and to refinish the teak. I removed the old varnish..what was left of it.. sanded it down and filled gaps with epoxy mixed with teak saw dust (as recommended by Paul).  After using teak cleaner and brightener to bring out the beautiful grain and color I had planned on putting on about 5 coats of varnish. However, being winter with its short days and difficulty getting a series off days with no humidity or precipitation, Paul suggesting going with Bristol, a 2-part epoxy that can be applied coat after coat with waiting for a full cure until the final coat. That is what I used and boy did it come out great!  No more canvas covering up this beautiful teak!
