    This is the best varnish I have used . In the past I have spent much more money on other brands that have not held up as well. This is all I will use.

        Comments about West Marine Five Star Premium Varnish:

        I acquired a 30 year old, neglected sail boat. I've completed refinishing all the exterior teak bright work using a combination of West Marine premium varnish over West System epoxy (207 clear. The results have been fantastic. The premium varnish applied easily and flowed beautifully over the epoxy and has performed very well

          Great product...lasts long and is easy to apply

          Service and delivery comments:

          It took over a month to get this product. Only because I called 4 times and really wanted this exact product, otherwise I would have cancelled this order. Past orders I have would say your delivery was excellent. This time very very poor.

              I finished the mahogany coaming boards on a 1969 o'day daysailer, my 1st project boat last summer. This varnish beat my expectations. Easy to work with when adding additional coats.
