It is so classic when someone's opinion is disagreed with that the whole forum, it's experienced members and their opinions are a joke....
but the joke is on who?
So true and I also agree with your
on post #31. If you mention Cetol the negative comments are fast and furious.
Cetol as stated is not a "Bristol" "Yacht Club" finish, however it is a good enough long lasting and easy to use finish in my opinion, and my opinion is so worthless that it's free on the internet.
Saying you don't like Cetol because you don't like the orange is like saying I don't like Fords because I don't like green cars, ummm the orange is a color of several in the Cetol line and it has been softened quite a bit from years ago.
I don't like varnishing, some do and good on them. They would love the tropical sun as they can start at one end of the boat and given the humidity and rain days when they get to the end of the boat they can go right back to the other and and start again. Not kidding a bit.
OP as PS said you need to try what you think best for your location and tolerance for work and given your location if you don't start with Cetol at least keep it in mind for the near future.
UV is one of the bad things about the south, it is an animal that eats stuff outside.
