I’ve got the vw100 in mine, I think it’s a good engine. I hear people with the nanni saying how good it is not to have an ecu but I think that’s a bit backwards

@Tony smith your wood looks nice in that dark colour. I had mine acid washed (years of incorrect oils and varnish) and then sanded lightly. Now the wood is a nice light natural colour which I love, it was darker to start with.8227A799-8FBB-4024-B834-4DA56672BC93.jpeg.00b499be5fd72864e8cc690f914b3c56.jpeg

Ive now purchased some Semco teak sealer with a honeycomb shade to it. This will be applied after another wash off and sanding.

I sanded it down and just put on a clear Danish oil the wood is Iroko which is a redwood when yours is wet it will go the same colour👍

Mine was done 4 weeks ago and it’s still light. Yes darkens for a bit whilst raining, but dries back to light neutral very quickly.

Hi mate

I have sealed my timber to stop it getting wet. Where yours is natural timber it's unsealed so can stain very easy.

Your timber is iroko the same as mine and is fine left untreated as it has it's own oils in the timber.

I just like to make it waterproof and no stains.

I do like the colour better untreated but I've got to seal mine up.

Hopefully there will be plenty of blood on the boat that can't stain the wood haha 👍

Lovely looking boat, thanks for posting the new pics. The before and after pics of the wood staining just shows how much you can improve the looks of timber if you put a little (lot) effort into it. Now you just need to clean her dirty bottom. :classic_wink: Geoff.
