Thanks for the comments and as I certainly apply the rule of whatever works for you and makes you happy, awesome.

Call me old school but Iím a bit of a purest, there are plenty of newer boats with no teak, and yes they look modern, but for me if I wanted a modern look I would have bought a modern boat.

Is it going to be a lot of work, yes. Is it a pain to work on, yes. Does it look fantastic next to all the modern boats, yes.

Boats are work, constant upkeep, maintenance, and the reward for me is when someone says, wow bright work is beautiful, such character and charm. So, Iím not a boater who is afraid of working on my girl, after all every relationship needs attention and not the simple way out

I did think the white rails looked good!

Happy boating.

Yeah, me too, but I started with 60 and was making no headway. I should qualify my original post, that regimen was for the cap rails; the handrails were in much better shape and 150/220 did the job.

Makes perfect sense. I hate to think of the amount of wood lost to the 36, but get the need to use the right tool for the job.

I also think all of our locations play such a factor in what we select to do with the bright work.

Took a few more photos. The PO apparently didnít know about tape and when he varnished it went all over the hardware and gel coat. We took all the hardware off and cleaned off the varnish and then polished it before we put it back on. Sorry about the dreaded sideways photos...
