Guys I am new to the game on this thread and read back some but couldn't find the exact recipe.

On a previous boat I used the starbrite product but seeing some of the pictures here I want to try the mineral spirits and linseed oil. Is really just these to products mixed 75/25.

Can someone direct me into the right products to use and directions. I want the best results as the platform on the X23 is the exotic garapa & ipe wood platform.

Reading through the thread I have seen some say don't use some products and use others. Anyways, I want the best results so please help a newbie.

Bubba says raw linseed oil. You will have to look a little farther than the big box stores for this.

The directions are a couple pages back in this thread. Just a matter of sanding, applying and wiping excess oil off after an hour or so.

Use caution with any rags as they will ignite by themselves.
