    It’s not an addiction, it’s not an addiction, DARN I hear them coming again trying to preform an intervention, gotta hide my varnish stash and skidaddle out of here but I’ll be back latter to comment more. It’s not an addiction……………

    “OLD BOATS EVEN SMELL BETTER”

    I’ve always wondered why one of the big fragrance companies hasn’t tried to bottle the essence of what I think smells so intoxicating in old boats…

    *BOAT HOUSE*
    Eau de Cologne
    for Him/for Her

    Key ingredients:

    Mahogany; Varnish; Yacht enamel; Fresh sawdust; Motor oil; Gasoline; Bilge water; Salt; Kapok; Suntan lotion; Naugahyde; Mildewed canvas; Fish blood; Wet towels; Boat exhaust; Wet dock planks; Seaweed…anything missing?

    I’d buy it…wouldn’t you?

    So now that I am stewarding 59 feet of Mahogany I buy my VARNISH by the gallon.

    Sometimes I feel sorry for you poor guys who still only buy it buy the quart. (Other days I envy you.)

  7. Chad

    And a fine steward you are Troy, with a gallon of the “good stuff”

    I linked this story to my FB page.

    This is the comment my 90+ year old aunt made.

    “Ralph had the same effect when he was varnishing his first airplane–who needs mariquana when you have varnish?”

    (Ralph is her husband and senior by a couple years.

    Varnish does have an addictive quality but personally, I prefer the glorious aroma of old oil and rotten gas mixed with bilge funk. I’ve been known to just sit in a bilge until I hyper-ventilate.

  10. Old Salt

    Is the addiction the reason why why tend to put so many layers of varnish on our woodies?? I originally thought it was to get a deep gloss shine… Know I know my family might have to do an intervention on me.. Does anyone know if there is a ten step I mean ten coat program for my recovery?
