Tally Ho: Varnishing Deck Beams

Leo Sampson and his crew of merry boatbuilders are making great progress on the restoration of his 1909 sailing yacht, Tally Ho. In episode 73 Tally Ho has started to resemble the curvy, gorgeous yacht that she is quickly becoming. With her deck beams ready for installation, the team is taking the time to seal the beams and beam shelf using our TotalBoat Wood Sealer, before applying spar varnish. Using this wood sealer will protect these important structural pieces from checking and splitting, and will give it a nice amber seal coat and ready all the pieces for future coats of varnish which can now be put off for a bit making way for other big projects like trimming the frame heads. Have a look at this amazing backyard boat build!
