Discoloration of Finish

Posted by M Cunningham on May 4, 2006

I know many of you will view this as blasphemy but I store my 6 year old Chesapeake 17 in the backyard year round.

This spring when I was giving it its spring clening I noticed that the finish had a lot of discoloration almost like mildew underneath (I think) the finish.

Is there any way to get rid of this or am I going to be stuck painting my wooden boat a boring solid color?
