Restoring and Refinishing Old Oak Hatch Doors
I have two doors that go to the booby hatch of our 1925 70ft tugboat.
The doors haven't been refinished in a very long time (we just purchased the boat last Sept.).
There is hardly any varnish left, the wood is very dry and there are cracked areas in the panels.
How can I repair those cracks and what should I seal the wood with before varnishing?
The doors are very heavy and I don't want to try and rebuild them, I doubt the doors can be taken apart without ruining them, so I need to make repairs in place.
Thanks for any help!
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.
