Ash for the inlay…. then coat it with GitRot…. seals the wood…you can get it from Jamestown Dist.. or just google GitRot… put the GitRot on till the wood will not soak anymore in..then you can varnish.. the pic enclosed is a 1942 17’ Runabout… in the process of rebuilding… note the wood is natural(except for the brown stripe), the GitRot brings out the highlights of the grain. Note,,, at this stage I have about 8 coats of Varish.. I use Interlux #96.. The top on this boat is about 30 years old. The only thing I had to do was replace the screws and re-varnish. You will find out that if you caulk your lines, that in the sun the caulk will shrink….
