Inhaltsangabe:

Few things transform a boat into a yacht quite as gracefully as the incomparable look and texture of oiled, varnished, and bare wood surfaces. Whether the spars and cabin trunk of a wooden Alden schooner, the mirror-smooth foredeck of a Huckins motoryacht, the thwarts and oars of a Whitehall dinghy, or the teak decks and trim of a production fiberglass boat, brightwork is the crowning touch that elevates one boat in an anchorage above the rest.

But it is also its owner's care and responsibility. There's no mystery to brightwork, but it's a finicky and time-consuming process, one that rewards orderliness and forethought and is unforgiving of missteps. Drawing on more than 10 years' experience as a brightwork specialist, Rebecca Wittman provides in this book all the information you need to avoid frustrations and costly mistakes and derive the greatest possible satisfaction from a process that can be its own reward.

She answers such questions as:

  • What are the symptoms of a deteriorating finish, and what clues does each provide to its source and cure?
  • When can chipped, flaking, cracked, or blackened varnish be patched, and when must it be removed to bare wood for an entirely new finish?
  • Which woods can be left bare?
  • In preparing wood for a finish it is really necessary to sand through all the grits from coarse to fine? (It isn't.)
  • When, if ever, is it advisable to use an oil finish on exterior surfaces?

Ms. Wittman has strong opinions. She favors foam brushes over expensive, badger-hair brushes, which achieve no better results and must be cleaned after each use with toxic solvents. She uses chemical strippers only on detailed or convoluted surfaces that a heat gun can't master. And she has clear preferences for certain varnishes and oils over others.

Her writing is meticulously thorough, yet graceful and entertaining. Brightwork is both a reference guide and a celebration of the art.

The techniques she describes will produce the highest-quality finishes on furniture in the home, as well.

Few things transform a boat into a yacht quite as gracefully as the incomparable look and texture of oiled, varnished, and bare wood surfaces. Drawing on her decades of brightwork experience, Rebecca Wittman shows you how to diagnose and cure a deteriorating finish, when cracked and flaking varnish can be patched and when it must be stripped and a new finish applied, how much sanding is truly necessary, and much more.

Rebecca Wittman cofounded The Teak Twins custom yacht refinishers in 1978 and has taught brightwork seminars at Seattle’s Center for Wooden Boats. She is also the author of The Brightwork Companion (2004).
