Hi Guys, Dave Terrell asked me to give you the information on "Ultimate
Sole" a high gloss varnish that is not slippery. I have put four coats
on the sole of my Islander-28 and I am very pleased with the results.
It is very easy to work with if you follow the directions. the web page
is www.ultimatesole.com and you can order online. If you have any other
questions after you have read the information on the web page you can
contact me at jwilliams at nmc.edu. Thanks Jerry

I am really glad to hear about the lighter version of Cetol. I used
Cetol when it was only advertised for porch decks and houses. Then the
marine version. I finally took it all off and went to Armada because
the dark color. But Armada doesn't last very long and the Armada 2000
only lasted about 1 MONTH. Mother Naure seems to have removed what was
left of the Armada in the past year and I plan to go back to Cetol.
I can try the light version.
On the interior I wash it down with a weak solution of clorox and
Then I use Formby's Lemon Oil. We have never had any mold/mildew and
the inside wood looks pretty good except where we had leaks.
I would really hesitate to put Armada, Cetol or varnish on the cabin
sole. You certainly don't want a slick surface at the bottom of the
companionway where there might be water. How about a polyurethane floor
