I generally try to avoid buying boats with exterior teak...in fact it is a criteria when shopping. If I feel the need to beautify the exterior of the boat, I just go out to the barn and grab a couple of these.....whom we shall call "woman".....we keep them in stacks down here in Texas!!!!

I get it now. It's "pick on Art day". I will say this. If everyone got as much enjoyment out of their boats as Art seems to get from his, the world would be a better place.

Happy boating daze, Art.

The wood interior covers/protects my boat's insulation.



Wood is also handy for making closets, drawers, interior walls, etcetera.



And it looks beautiful.

Surely does. Seahorse II had the tradition thing right, too. The Herreshoff style of yacht interiors is also beautiful. Painted flat work with dark wood trim.

The concept was if the first time boat buyer (the usual TT buyer) saw lots of nice shelacked wood (eye candy) he would not look at the construction, wiring , engine setup, fuel tanks , and would not have the boat surveyed before purchase.

AN interior woodwash worked for about a decade until folks found out how their :teak decks: were installed.

In the 70s I made a nice living outfitting and trouble shooting these new boats .

Today their construction std. is well known and old boats are priced by weather the initial construction problems were solved or not.

Nailed it, whether or not people wish to know it.

I guess is part tradition, part prestige, part personal preference.

I never owned a boat, so I guess I don't know anything about tradition. Probably ,if I will ever own a boat, I would try to fit it with the most suitable materials, which, most probably would be cheaper too. I also prefer cloth seats over leather in my car. I haven't yet meet anyone else with the same preference.

Thank you all for your answers.

Prefer cloth over leather seats too, but wood in a boat's interior is nice. Sure beats plastic or a rug on the walls.

Walt and others it actually is teak or the Willard Boat Owners Group dosn't know shit from teak. There probably is many kinds of Teak like there is many different kinds of Mahogany. It's all oily like all the other Teak I've been around. Feels and looks like teak but really I don't know. And on the cap rail it did turn black like everybody said it would after I quit coating it w my oil. Now I've got to get it through the winter and make a plan for spring. Anybody brought Teak back from black?

If anybody knows about TWP (Total Wood Preservative) finish please start a new thread about it. Comes from AMTECO. Not a marine product.

I like the teak interior in our current boat, but there is so much of it it can be somewhat overwhelming at times. Also, being mostly teak veneer ply, one has to be a bit careful when attempting to refinish/repair it.

If I had my druthers, I would go with an interior somewhat akin to what we had on our previous wooden boat. It was solid mahogany trim and painted panels and was easy to repair/replace/build anew with and it visually lightens up the interior of the boat. Don't know if it qualified as a Herreshoff interior, but close.

Greetings,
Mr. mb. Have you considered using a pressure washer on your caprail? Although quite harsh, it may drive the oxidized (black?) oil out of the pores. A light sand where the grain is raised and then re-coat as per your desires.
As to the OP's question...Wood just feels warmer even if it's just wood accents.

I would say that classifies as a Herreshoff type interior.

I posted this and some photos over on this Pilgrim thread..

In those days the 'wood trim' was often a structural portion of the interior item, thus the carpentry skills required were even more elaborate. Nowadays the wood trim is of a 'cosmetic additional to the underlying structure. It can still accomplish the same Herreshoff 'effect'', but it is somewhat easier to build.

Brian I may have misread what you meant here. There are boat manufacturers that build with GRP hulls and deck houses. The "furniture" is made to become a part of the structurals of vessel by tabbing the floors and bulkheads into the hull so that it becomes actually a part of the structure. These are mostly low volume and semi custom builders.

We rebuilt our pilot house an v berth . I work for hardwood lumber and we use a lot of African mahogany . When I'm not doing something mechanical on the boat I'm doing wood work . I like what wood does for the interior . I think a mix of painted surface along with wood is easy on the eyes .

Pick on Art - never - he's lovely. No that was just what my old grandpa called a bit of harmless joshing, eh Walt..?

As to some more pics of me and mine...well mine anyway, as the guy taking it is me...come to think of it it nearly always is me...that's why it lopoks like I was hardly there on our video of our UK trip I guess.
But here's my 2iC, youngest son, daughter-in-law, and eldest son's two kids, my grandchildren, sadly mostly in London now. Don't know how eldest son snuck out of the pic, but he did.

Now back on topic - what was it again...oh yes...why all the wood. Well, wood's just nice...best material there is, and it floats did you know..?

Have you checked to see how well the sprayed insulation burns?
