FIRST COAT

Here are the western weatherboards, after a first application of decking oil. I will tackle the second coat in a week or so, if there is a dry spell. The oil looks to be primarily Tung Oil, with small additions of Eucalypt, Pine etc.  It gives a lovely, fresh finish, which should change to soft grey over the next few years – especially on the western side of the Boatshed, where the wood will be exposed to the full impact of winter storms and summer heat.
