Question

Can I get away with just the sealer? Applied it to tiller and rudder and it was fantastic! Put two coats so far of Epifanes.What I'm thinking is the top rail...it was always painted but I took it down to the bare wood...don't want to miss too much more of the season so,what do you think,can I get away with just a couple of coats of the sealer? primary use is in fresh water

Top Answer

This product is designed as an undercoat, but it does still have UV resistance. Due to the lower solids than a traditional varnish, 2-3 coats of varnish is more equal to 1 coat of varnish (as far as build and protection). We would recommend at least a couple coats of varnish for a summer of UV protection on top of wood sealer. For applications where you are simply looking to seal a product like a sheet of plywood, a few coats of Wood Sealer are sufficient.

It won't last! Several coats of "Lust" varnish can be applied in just a few hours. Better to make the job last since you put all of that work into it.SB

Answer

NO NO NO. The name of the product says it all. "Totalboat Wood Sealer Varnish Primer" PRIMER it is not formulated to hold up to the weather. This product ( PRIMER ) is a little thinner than Varnish that you use for the top coats. If you do not top coat the primer with varnish you will see the primer breaking down before the end of THIS year's boating season. Take the time to do the job Right or you will be stripping what ever is left of the primer over the winter, to do the job all over again for the next boating season. The choice is yours GOOD LUCK.

Question

I just got a quart of Wood Sealer varnish primer. I am a Cane & Walking Stick maker, and I got this product to seal the wood on my projects. I hoping this is all I need for coverage. What do you think? And do I really have to strain it before I use it?

Asked on 09/20/2021 by Irvin from Star Lake, NY 13690

Top Answer

Filtering is always a best practice because the finish is translucent and foreign particles will be easy to see. It is very thin so it should go far. It all depends on how thirsty the wood is.

How does this compare to Cetol?

Asked on 10/20/2019 by Chuck from Gulf Breeze, Florida

Top Answer

This is a thin varnish product made to penetrate the fibers and seal it prior to applying a varnish. Not like Cetol at all.

Question

can total boat wood sealer varnish primer be used to seal wood that is going to be painted with enamel, such as Kirbys or similar? I don't want to coat the wood with epoxy, so if the total boat wood sealer varnish primer is not the best choice, what other product would be better? Salem sealer? David Posner

Asked on 04/23/2017 by dr. P from Long Island NY

Top Answer

You could use the Totalboat Wood Sealer or the Pettit EZ Wood Sealer, either will work.

Question

I am restoring teak on an old boat. After removing all the old varnish, is Total Boat Wood Sealer Varnish Primer the best product to use on the bare teak or would Total Boat Penetrating Epoxy be a better choice? In either case I would be applying multiple coats of 1-part varnish after the primer hardens.

Asked on 04/19/2017 by nacho from Marion, MA

Top Answer

I'd recommend the penetrating epoxy to seal the teak in an exterior application, it will seal out moisture and prolong the life of the varnish.

Question

Is your wood sealer for varnish compatible over an oil based stain? Plan on a varnish finish on this stained strake and wonder if this would be worthwhile?

Asked on 02/21/2017 by dmq400 from Belmont , Vt

Top Answer

It should be fine over a dried stain. We recommend testing a small area to be sure there are no problems.
