Use of Tung oil on clinker boat interior

Chris Davidson
I am thinking about applying tung oil rather than varnish ora linseed oil mix to the interior of the 16' clinker dinghy nearing completion. I understand that it takes a great deal of time to dry and needs the edition of some Japan drying agent to speed up the oxidation process. Any views on this? Regards, Chris

It's not cheap, but it's darn good stuff and a 1 litre tin will last an age - Deks Olje 1

Give the wood a lovely finish which can easily be touched up as required. I use it for gunwales etc and use the gloss top coat for added bling  Left as a matt finish, it's perfect.
