Our pins are varnished (bright and shiny) whereas the racks are oiled. Today, I'm doing my once-a-year oiling of the racks (after sanding them and cleaning them a bit) and I'm starting on my 3 day varnishing spree of the pins.

A neighboring boat has varnished racks and plain (no oil no varnish) pins.

Anyone know the history of which way it usually is and why? Maintenance?

Thanks!

Varnishing well underway now. Oiling is done (racks) and two more coats on the pins...then I'll be set for another year of using them.
