Answer

Hi, Wasn't terribly humid when we used it. We hung the items on a clothes line, I think just overnight.

Answered on 08/13/2016 by Ed Harrow

Answer

I am on Chesapeake Bay and suffer similar humidity, especially during the summer, and I have also experienced slow drying on my bright work.. Fortunately (haha), I have enough bright work to coat that it takes me several days before I am ready to recoat. A little thinners should speed the drying process. Good luck.

Answer

No, it is fine out of the can. If spraying you will need to thin it with solvent. If on raw cedar it should also be thinned. If going over a previous finish you should call Jamestown for their recommendation.

Answer

Sorry but I only used it on my boat. Patrick

Answered on 11/28/2016 by PATRICK DEMERE

Answer

I'm sure you could find a finish specifically designed for cedar siding at Lowes or Home Depot for a fraction the cost.

1. Can this product be used over the top of an oiled timber? 2. Will this product mark cushions which will be stored in a unit painted with this product?

Asked on 03/17/2015 by Barbara Garnett

Hi, I recently sold my trawler which was a TotalBoat poster child. Tired of the annual teak deck event, I put TBWF on it and it wore unevenly. I sanded down to new wood, oiled it, and then bleached the top for better adherence. It went on and stayed on great and I just put on a fresh coat for the next couple of years without having to sand. Since it "breathes", it lets water in and out, albeit in small amounts, and didn't blister or bubble. It worked so well, I sanded down all the rails and external teak and applied multiple coats on them, with some light sanding between the 3rd and 4th coat. While it never got that hard finish of varnish, it was a pretty color (teak TBWF) and never bubbled or blistered. I had just put on my second year's coat when I sold it, so I can't go much longer on how that went, but I did it like the deck, without sanding. After a year, the first application did have some wear spot in places grabbed a lot, and I suppose I could have touched them up during the year, but it was a loss of glass as opposed to a loss of color. This is a nifty oil and stain combination, so it never seems to be really dry. While I never had any come off on my feet or clothes from the deck or rails, I couldn't give you a 100% on that. It was used around the edges of my cushioned areas on the flybridge, but those cushions were also treated with Scotchguard, which may have provided some additional protection. High confidence level without a guarantee about sums it up...lol. Hope this tome helped. Jim

Barbara; 1. I can not answer this, have not tried. 2. I think you will be OK here, not totally sure but finish appear very hard.

Answered on 03/17/2015 by ROLLAND BROWN

Answer

I see no reason why this product cannot be used over oiled teak. I expect to do the same this season.

Answered on 03/17/2015 by BRUCE KRAEUTER

Answer

I think the best way to answer both questions is to state that the product dries like varnish. If the timber is oiled with linseed, then cleaning it with something like acetone should make it accept the marine wood finish. If you can make it accept varnish, it will accept the wood finish. If the cushions aren't vinyl with a plasticizer that softens varnish, they will be ok in a unit painted with wood finish.

Question

Is this product suitable for use on a teak swim platform?

Asked on 05/13/2015 by Bill L

Top Answer

Absolutely. Started with it on my trawler deck and it worked so well that I added it to the railings, swim platform, and other exterior teak. I sanded and bleached before the first coat and after that just added new layers when it appeared to get weathered. It would last a year, but I like the boat to always look crisp.

I refinish doors but they don't stand up to the atmosphere in 6mths to 1yr it breaks down I would like to know what product is good to used and which one of the product is clear and not amber

Asked on 01/10/2021 by Alexander from Nj

Top Answer

It is common for most finishes to gradually break down due to UV. The best method is to put on a lot of coats to build depth and then do an annual maintenance coat. In more extreme conditions, a maintenance coat may be required more often. TotalBoat Halcyon is available in a clear finish.

Question

Would this product be used in lieu of teak oil? Also, could a spar varnish be used as a finish on top of this product. I wouldn't necessarily do that, but trying to gauge the specific benefits/compatibility.

Asked on 12/14/2019 by David from Minneapolis, MN

Top Answer

Yes, you use this product in lieu of teak oil. Initial coats penetrate like oil but following coats build like varnish. I would not recommend overcoating Wood Finish with spar varnish as it may not adhere well.

All the estimated coverage listed is per single coat.
