Learn Varnishing and Finishing Like a Pro at The Apprenticeshop!

By The Apprenticeshop | Feb 21, 2014

Do you have varnish on your boat that has lost its luster? Are you tired of your paint jobs looking good from afar, but far from good? If so, join Dan McNaughton, a 35-year veteran wooden boat finisher and rigger, for four evenings of varnishing basics and pick up some useful techniques that the pro’s use.

Topics to be covered will include, stripping old varnish, proper surface preparation, application considerations and a few tricks to have your bright work looking better than ever this summer. Although the class is geared toward applying varnish, many of the concepts also be applied to marine enamels and other paints.

Students are encouraged to bring their own small boat parts, such as small companionway hatches, hatch-boards or tillers to practice on. For more information, or to register for the class email pennys@apprenticeshop.org or call the office at 207-594-1800.


Time 5:30 to 8:00pm

Dates: March 18, 20, 25 & 27
