Author Topic:   Pressure treated wood

I just became the proud owner of a 1963 13' Sport, restored 3 yrs ago. The bench seats were two 1"x6' pieces of pressure treated wood attached at the bottom. They were oiled and ended up cracking. I'm in process of replacing them with 2"x12" pressure treated wood. I notched out the ends to fit into the side wood and it looks great, almost matches the color of the deck storage cover.

Here is my problem. What do I treat the wood with after I sand it? Thompson's water seal, polyeurethane, oil, nothing? The wood only cost $18 and took a short time to fit, so if it dosn't look good and I replace the seats next season it's no big loss. Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Mike, the method used by most is to stain the Mahogany either brown or red, then to varnish it. Sikkens cetol varnish is very good! Good luck-Jack Graner.
