  1. It sounds epic. That's the magic of living here, experiencing things like that. Sometimes too amazing to describe. When the dolphins bow the boat like that! Swam with my first whale shark the other day, about 45-50 feet long. And the whales..... I love them.
  2. I'll see if I can get the info. That's good news, was worried I had to strip it all first but will do a test patch. What sealant should I grab from Ace? You do know Maui and nice with the windsurfing. It's been going off Westside. I was living part Haiku last year so got to see you guys out there a lot. I live Launiupoko area and yes traffic is a bit much but building the bypass helped out a lot. Just sailed a 65' CAT back from Oahu. it was awesome. i appreciate your input. Thanks so much!
  3. Aloha! I recently hired a guy to seal a few large posts around a pool cabana asking him to match the ones on the main house lanaI, matte, natural color of wood. I'm guessing he just used whatever he had in his truck which seems to be a marine grade high gloss poly. I gave it a couple days hoping the shine would dull when dry but no such luck. It's been almost 2 weeks and still slightly tacky too. I know I should try and get him to correct it, especially for what he charged but sometimes you just want it fixed without a lot of hassle so going to do it myself. so..... How do I go about sealing it with a matte? Do I need to strip off the gloss or can I paint it on top? Also, what do you recommend for sealer? Any advice is very appreciated. In the pics I'm posting, the first 3 are the correct, existing ones and rest are the ones I need to redo. Other details, Poles are outdoors, live on the Westside on Maui so it's hot. Mahalo! Mahalo! Thank you!
