ACE Floor Boards

I had taken the ACE's floor boards home to refinish in the off season.

The teak and holly boards (7 of them) are a veneer that is very thin.
Using a chemical stripper is not an option because it is so thin.
Had to hand scrape them with a carbide scrapper from Lee Valley Tools.

Took several hours for each board over the last month.

Half scraped
The boards are in rough shape.  Water in the bilge behind the boards had worked it way behind the finish and turned it white.  Salt water didn't help.

Put four coats of Minwax Marine Polyurethene on the topside and three on the back, with a sand with 220 grit sandpaper between each coat.

Turned out pretty good!

The boards are little discoloured but turned out very good!
