      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

Refinish Teak and Maple floors

4 posts in this topic

I have a 1987 48 Albin with what I believe are teak and maple hardwood floors.  Most is in decent shape and just needs sanded and refinished.  Some of the areas have some very small gaps in between the maple and teak on the surface but are structurally sound. The gaps are less than a size of a pin. They are mainly in areas at the doors are and got wet.  Should I fill these cracks first, if so what product do you recommend. Also what finish do you recommend?

You could fill the gaps with a clear epoxy resin like Totalboat 2:1 Epoxy Kit which will dry clear and fill the cracks.  I would recommend cleaning the cracks out well first, fill with the resin, let cure then sand the floor.

A regular spar varnish is commonly used like Pettit Captains or our Totalboat Gleam.  We also have a water based poly called Halcyon varnish that is a semi-gloss and dries to a really hard finish.  Any of those would be fine.
