Great for outdoor protection
By Jack of all trades from New Fairfield, CT

I use this marine varnish to protect outdoor Teak furniture. The UV protection is great, particularly if multiple coats are applied. I wish I had a sailboat with Teak decking, but alas, No.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Disappointment by Comparison
By Lightning Owner from Erie, CO

Verified Purchase

I used this varnish at the recommendation of another builder, and against my better judgement I bought it and am stuck with the remaining 2 of 3 pints. I'm disappointed that even following the sanding, coverage, and thinning directions to the tee, it hasn't performed. It spreads as it's laid down, i.e. lacks flow if used with a brush, sags on thinner coats on vertical surfaces (even when laid down extremely thin), shows any "off track" with the brush strokes and when laid on thicker binds in the brush and surface. I use another brand that has the same synonym as a skipper of boat (not sure we can compare brands in these reviews - which though I struggled with at times, it has a way more consistent hold, flow, and spreads evenly in a "self-correcting" manner. I know because I was laying down both brands at the same time in the exact same conditions. I'm going back to my original varnish - now let me do a review for that one! I'm not laying down another pint of this stuff and will go with the other brand - it's really top notch by comparison. Sad thing is that there are no returns on paints - my bad not to know this in advance. Don't buy unless your sure or want to eat the cost.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Been using it for years
By Ed from New Providence NJ

I use Epifanes for a north facing mahogany front porch that gets pounded by nor' easters. The last coat I put on lasted 4 years before I needed to redo it. A solid performer and great advice from Jamestown Distributers

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
