Re: Window reveals refurb?

Mark Erdos


On our previous boat, a Cheoy Lee, we had a lot of teak. The best thing I found was to strip the wood down and apply West System epoxy, then a few coats of varnish with UV protection. This works well and will last about 4-5 year before needing to be recoated again with varnish (no need to do the epoxy again).

Hpe this helps.

With best regards,

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Window reveals refurb?


Does anyone have any tips or tricks for repair of the window reveals ?

By this I mean the exposed ply edging around the inside of the windows - photo attached

I’m not sure if the SMS have this same design but on my Maramu these ply edges get a lot is sun and in places the facing veneer is starting to delaminate.

Just sand and varnish as best possible or does anyone have any more ideas about a better fix?

Many thanks
