Annually??? Someone had OCD.
The sole may need a light sanding and a matte or satin refinish every few years but other than that...

All my windows are laminated glass so UV doesn't hit interior varnish. Still looks OK after 35 years with the exception of a few spots under window leaks.

It really did mention interior varnish as well as exterior. That's what got me thinking that if I had to varnish inside AND outside then maybe I should consider another boat. There is enough exterior to worry about!
Lots of good info from you folks. Thanks again.

Thanks all! It’s been a 3 year process. I actually didn’t even realize my puppy Max was in the picture. I have a few projects left. New bridge enclosure is being made as I write this. I’m a former interior decorator, in what seems like another life! Lol!

When it’s finished, probably another 6 months or so, I’ll post all interior and exterior pics in a new “finished” thread.

All of this is fluff but I can ensure you all systems and engine is in stellar working condition. Totally love working on her. New survey is around the corner to up my insurance. Then what? Maybe I’ll come and work on your boats!!! Lol! I’m gonna be bored!

My 1980 boat has the same amount of teak as any 1987 GB 42. When I acquired this boat in 1993 the interior needed freshening, mostly to get rid of cigarette smell. Since that fresh coat of semi gloss varnish it has had another, and in some places I am considering doing it again. The floor gets high gloss, some of the trim as well, but most of the teak gets semi.
My exterior teak OTOH all gets gloss. Some boards are ready for their second coat, but most get it semi-annually or annually. I keep Retreat in a shelter 6 months and in the weather 6 months.
