There was no problem cleaning the wood on a new boat, as it was all new wood. On old wood, use a good grade commercial cleaner and degreaser, then sand it with #150 or finer sandpaper. You may need to bleach out any dark stains, and possibly a light coating of mahogany stain wiped on to even out the color just before putting on the finish. I would recommend Armada or similar satin finish on the wood. Lasts a lot longer than oil, and does not pick up the dirt and smoke in the air.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
