Re: Teak Oil Finish for Mahogany?

Lots of people oil/stain mahogany for furniture, crafts, etc. If you like it, do it.

Re: Hypothetical - you come up, boat gone, all alone

FYI,,your crew may be ordered to back off in a search,,,That's usually when our boat's radio suddenly has static and the reply can be garbled. But most often the radio works just fine.

Re: Hypothetical - you come up, boat gone, all alone

Yep, if no storms and safe.
