We had ours redone this spring. Put on 4 coats of captains gloss then 2 coats satin. The gloss has way better build and uv protection. Then the satin dulls it out for the top coats. The floors look brand new.

Hi, I just upgraded my anchor to a Rocna 55KG - No this isn't an anchor thread.. My question is my current windlass chain is rated for 4500 lbs but the only shackles I can get to fit in the chain are rated at 3,000 lbs, thus making the shackle the weak link in the system. What's the workaround to ge...
