by Karen from Mentor, Ohio on August 03, 2013
So, I did not buy this for a boat. I bought an amazing Amish-built Adirondack glider that was not cheap. I had the glider for maybe 2 weeks and it started to get moldy from the morning dew and the light rain we had. So I had to wash, bleach and re-sand the entire chair. To prevent this occurring again it was recommended I try a boat product. I could have used polyurethane but I was not certain how well it would hold up in outside weather. The Captain's Varnish has weather-sealed the wood. It bought out a natural and darker coloring to the cypress wood which makes the Adirondack glider look great. I would definitely buy this again.
