Hi all...

The scroll work that resides on the four corners of my T37 has been neglected for years. In fact, there are places it is worn smooth with the surrounding teak. Has anyone ever fixed this?


What would you suggest? Wood Carving knives and a steady hand? Sanding the whole thing smooth? Some funky dremel tool add on? Painting on the design once the varnish has dried?

Thanks...JohnnyB

varnish it as it is and let the wear and tear serve as a demonstration of the durability of your boat.

I really like the signs of wear that tell you a boat has been used (not the same as the signs of poor maintenance) . Worn Sampson posts are a thing of beauty from my perspective. The brand new ones on my boat are embarrassing.

The is a reason gray hair is considered distinguished.
