Hi Guys
Our boat is about 35 years on now. I want to brighten up the interior wood stain.
I have tried rubbing down and staining it with Ronseal teak stain.
Problem is that it is getting darker with each coat.
What can I do to brighten things up apart from painting it white!!!
Would like to have a light coloured wood stain.
In the pic is the colour stain before I stained it with the teak and it got darker.
Thanks for any advice.

Jim, the only truly effective method may be to sand the timber right back to bare wood and then bleach out any remaining, stubborn colour. Very labour-intensive but you should get a good result. I've managed to successfully revitalise timber using this method. The more time taken to prep the timber, the better the result should be.

Once you have your timber at the 'bare' stage, apply a grain sealer then you can apply a lighter stain or simply use a clear varnish to bring out the patina in the timber.

Good luck...and remember the face mask...hardwood dust is a nasty irritant! Smile

Another thought I had was to glue some 2mm ply onto the existing panels and start fresh.

Just found this pic online and is the blue on the press a blue material? If so what is it and how is it applied?

The 2mm ply is a much easier solution...minimal dust too. Smile

Another method would be to apply a thin hardwood veneer. They're available in largish sheets and in lots of different timber species. Not the cheapest solution though but you would have more control over the final finish.

The blue stuff in your picture looks like a kind of Formica veneer which can easily be applied using a contact adhesive. I used a walnut Formica veneer on the helm of our boat. Cuts easily with a sharp Stanley knife, looks good and is very scratch resistant...as you'd expect from Formica.

If you did want to go down the laminate road mine came from a chap in Tamworth. He had a huge stock of colours, effects and patterns. It was all out of current range old stock stuff but the prices were very nice! Here's a link (I hope)

We went for a nice light colour in the heads...


If I am a "woody" how come there are no "fibreglassy's" "plasticy's" or "steelies"?

Jimfin,

Why not try rubbing down a small are that is not seen to lighten the wood up and then rag - wipe over with a 50/50 or 75/25 mix of varnish and white spirit as this worked well on our Princess 33 but try an area that is not seen first to see how you like it. Smile

Kindest Regards Mike

I could well be wrong (often am) but the blue in the photo looks much like the thin upholstery carpet used to line camper vans.
It is exactly the same colour as that in my van too!

You could be right actually. Zooming in on the picture does show a fabric-like texture to the surface...assuming that isn't just pixelation of course. Smile

I've seen a few dayboats with a similar product on their surfaces. Hard-wearing stuff.

Before you start rubbing down anything have a care those bulkheads look like 35 year old ply panels, they may not respond very well to rough treatment.  having gone through this some years ago I ended up facing with very thin ply which I had selected because it had a reasonable grain to it, cheaper and more flexible than true veneer.  A card template is important for the complex panels.  Choose the glue you use with care not an 'instant grab' one because getting it right from the outset in restricted space is almost. I found, impossible.  I painted with Deks no 1 first (about 3 coats) which brought the grain up nicely then either gloss or satin varnish with a little stain added to the first coat if you really want an exact match.
