Adirondack refinishing, Varnish

The Adirondack guide boat is stripped, cleaned and repaired. I have added the first coat of oil and varnish solids to the boat thinned to 50/50 so I get good penetration into the wood.  The look of the 100 + year old wood that makes up this boat is amazing with incredible depth and character.  In some locations the wood is worn from use by a rower from years past and there are patches, scratches and rubs all along the boat revealing that this was once used as a regular useful tool.
