Nothing like the smell of WRC at the end of a nice day.

I’m refinishing a GP I made for my grandson. I used Tung oil on the paddle except for the blade tips. I used GFlex for those. The entire paddle had mildewed except the tips.
I find that strange.
I just sanded the whole paddle except the tips. Tomorrow I’ll GFlex it all and protect it with spar urethane.
It’s humid here and the paddle has been stored in the garage.
The one on the wall in the den hasn’t mildewed at all.
