    Take the air hose off at the horn to see if air is getting there. Is there a 12 volt solenoid at the horn? Is it opening to allow air into the horn?

    typically just teak oil. you can also thin out a traditional varnish and apply it. there is an excellent video on this on youtube where a guy does a sailboat.

    Glad to find you on CSR! Just wanted to say thank you for the outstanding vids on restoring your 390! We looked at a few in large part due to what I saw on YouTube from you. The " Admiral" then fell completely in love with our 340 ! Again, your info was invaluable, especially the trim tab upgrade. Due to space, I went with larger, drop fine tabs,thanks tabman!, and love it - 21kts, 2900rpms, secondaries CLOSED !

    Great read so far... The teak refinishing article in our technical section is very good. I am going to build a teak table for the cockpit table in our 320 and I am going to follow the directions in the tech article.
