Painting floor of sabre

Postby nicgel on Wed Mar 12, 2008 4:18 pm

Can anyone suggest what is the best way to paint the floor of a Sabre? Should one put on a non-skid finish or is better to varnish it? The latter seems less complicated.

Hi Nic
I'd suggest varnishing if the wood is still in reasonable condition. Painting can be a pain as you need to undercoat first. If it's a new boat I'd suggest using some 2 pack wood preservative on the raw wood first- then varnish.
Non-skid on the tops of the floor stiffeners is adequate.
