Was having a lovely time over on yachtblogs.com until my account suddenly seized up and I couldn't access it anymore. None of my attempts to contact the webmaster resulted in success. So here I am again.
We've been working on the decks again lately. Quick update is that the Speedheater is an amazing tool for removing previous finishes. Brock was suspecting that we would have to just paint the decks if we couldn't get the finish to come up. But a matter of hours with this new toy and BAM! Down to bare wood.
Then of course came the sanding and cleanup.
Followed by a lovely new finish. It's a 'medium rub oil' look and it brings out the natural look of the wood. While we wish we had spent a little more time sanding our way up through the grits, it's not a bad looking job overall.
