Ash timber finish

He everyone, My partner and I are restoring a seacraft timber boat and i was looking at finishing the skin with marine ply made with the outer layer Ash. Was wondering what different types of finishes people have gotten from Ash timber and how they got it.
Thanks

Re: Ash timber finish

What a fantastic project @Focusmarine. I'm looking forward to reading more about it. Have you got any photos of the boat you can share?

 

I trust other Workshop members will be able to provide some suggestions for you about potential finishes. Perhaps @Simon might be able to assist?

 

Let me also extend a very warm welcome to Workshop. It's fantastic to have you join the community. I'm sure you'll find plenty of like-minded people here who love to get stuck into D.I.Y. projects and share their experiences and knowledge.

Good luck with it. 

 

This site suggests that these days Ash is favoured for internal fit-outs only. Unfortunately it doesn't say what treatment they would recommend.

 

Have you got any photos of the boat?

I have a feeling that the wet side is epoxy/poly coating and the option of anti fouling paint underwater. Deck would be anti slip coating and the internal Ash more or less free choice.
