Mildew under Cetol
I spent hours stripping and refinishing the wood seats and combing on my sailboat.
I took it down to the bare wood, put three coats of Cetol on it and it looked good.
I put a tarp on the boat over the winter and I think it was too airtight.
I just uncovered it and the wood seats are covered in mildew, mostly where the grains in the wood are visible.
Why wouldn't the Cetol have sealed the wood enough to prevent moisture from getting in?
Do I have to sand all the wood down and start again?
How can I prevent this from happening again?
It looks awful!
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
