I have my bare Mahogony wood ready for the finish to be applied again for my 1981 restored 15' Boston Whaler Sport I did a few years ago. I have a new 4 stroke suzuki 60hp with hydrolic jack plate I just recently put on (bit of an overkill I know) so I thought I would redo the wood. I did the wood originally I used a 2 part Varnish from West Marine and frankly it held up good the first year and I was just to dam Lazy to sand and recoat every six months or every year from what I know now and I did not keep it covered even though I have a new cover? So my excuse is we use it a lot so why cover it if I am using it next weekend, right? So the question is for a Lazy SOB like me is there anything more permanent to put on Mahogony to still show off that it is Beautiful Mahagony but will last a lot longer so I do not have to refinish every six months or start over every 2years like I am doing now (as you can tell I hate to do Brite work). I have seen some whalers that have had all their wood just painted white but I don't want to go that way so I am looking for the easier softer way to do my wood and still keep that Great Whaler Look.
