    • It dont look all that bad sam, a little patina on a 70 yr old boat is expected..Maybe skim a little oak filler over the remaining black areas, lightly sand it and call it good....the varnish is gonna color it all a bit too......

        • I don't ever comment because I know nothing of wooden boats and they are in a class of boats above mine. Comparing it to mine is like comparing a nissan sentra to a 57 chevy.

          Anyway kudos this thing is magnificent. Like my old chevelle. These little imperfections are things only you will see when it is done. Because only you know where they are. Keep rocking it.

          • you could try air-brushing different stains over the area to blend it. Either way, like chevymaher mentioned....wood boats are in a class all their own.

              • At some point you have conclude that you've done everything you could and accept it. Scott's idea is worth a shot. It's an old wood boat being reborn with a mind of its own. It will still be a beauty when its all said and done.

                • Have you thought about bleaching the entire top with the latest formulation that you used? It might even up the color a bit and make the color difference less noticeable. Just a thought.
                  You could also add a bit of stain to your first coat of poly to even up the color. Might want to try that one on a bit of scrap first though.

                  • Yep guys , I know she will never be perfect but you know it’s hard to let things slide when you have already spent so much time on it . Got to give it the college try ! Lol ! I’ll try and blend it in with some stain and see what happens .
                    And nurseman the thought has crossed my mind on bleaching it all to match then staining it . I’m avoiding that if possible ..

                    • Sam for the past year, I've been working part time doing High End Furniture repair for an upscale Furniture Company here in OKC. I've learned a LOT about wood toners etc and If I do say so myself, have gotten really good at it. I'd be more than happy to share my knowledge and how you can fairly easily blend the color variations to make her look much more uniform. If and when you want to pursue give me a call. In the meantime look into Mohawk wood finishing products and videos of using their wood toners.

                      • Thanks Mike , I can always count on you for some good advise ..
                        Had to work today but did get the rest of the bottom fairing sanded out . Then sil got a call from one of his buddies that was broke down out in the creeks . So we took Chris’s boat out and got them going .. Running around out there at night is not my cup of tea .. But all’s well he just had a dead battery ...

                          • Behlen is the stain /tint and reducer I’m using .. And did use on the inside of the hull today ..
                            I was trying to match the tone on the outside . The mix was 50/50 stain and reducer . Pretty close I think ,might have added a little more reducer to make it lighter . Before the stain I used a pre-stain conditioner..
