Refinishing the Navman instrument board for Encore

Posted By on January 13, 2014


The previous spar varnish on the teak instrument mounting board deteriorated under the sun and weather when in storage last year. This time I’m going to use a product I’ve used on previous boats and while doing some other brightwork on Encore. Hopefully with enough coats and yearly maintenance the finish will hold up a bit longer. Eventually I may replace the teak with Starboard, maybe when I replace the sporadic older “legacy Navman depth, knotmeter and log.”
