There are a couple things you need to know about teak.
1. It's expensive.
2. When it is weathered, it is called "silver". Nice & natural. Aged.
3. For us, it is getting sanded & varnished with several coats.
4. It's expensive, so make it look that way. Right?

Our teak has had 20 tough years in salt water & sun, plus whatever God gave it before it was drilled into our Mako. It was always our plan to pull it off & restore it, too. As you can see from the photos, it has a beautiful honey-colored finish.

Because of our rain day yesterday, Jack had plenty of time to do this into the evening hours. We had tornadoes north of us today and the tarp had replaced itself somewhere else. I had to go up there and recover everything. While I was there, I took a picture of the rain damage on the "windshield area" paint job.

What a shame since Jack was doing such a lovely job with rolling it on instead of spraying it.
Our goal is to be 100% done with the boat by the 2nd week of February. My parents are coming to town and it is always a treat to take them fishing, weather permitting. Plus, by March, the cobia will be strolling into town and we are anxious to see what they think of the new paint job. (wink, wink)
Happy Fishing,
