It is the only varnish I use. It goes on smoothly, and dries to a beautiful finish.

After numerous YouTubes and reading instructions on everything from brushes, dust abatement and "tipping off", I took the plunge with the Captain's varnish. After spending hours building a specialty Yacht step box, I didn't want to ruin the end result with a finish that was something less than fantastic. The varnish was great, my skills improved and the result is something I can be proud of. The next time will be even better now that I've learned lessons that only experience can teach. One of those lessons is to keep using Captain's Varnish!

I'm not certain Captain's Varnish is the best on the market, but I know how it behaves and I'm very comfortable using it. I've been using it exclusively for more than 25 years. It's very predictable if I stick to my routines.

Z spar has been a good choice for my needs. I am using it for my front door where the door gets a lot of sun and rain in Spring Hill Tn. I have to repaint the door every 2 or 3 years after applying 3 coats. It would be nice if there was a product that last longer.

I use this varnish on the brightwork on my 1985 Grand Banks Classic. It's easy to use and wears very well. Our boat always gets rave reviews!

I use this product on brightwork and spars. Also on stained, pine Adirondack chairs with 5-6 coats. Absolutely gorgeous deepening the color of the stain with an amber glow.
