Answer: The Century you show would be 1579 with Avondire decks finished natural. Avondire is a white mahogany and was not stained only clear coats. The dark covers and king, in our shop, are treated separate from the rest of the boat. Once the sides and decks are stained and sealed, we mask the boat so the only exposed areas are the covers and king, apply 1579, and after it is completely rubbed out you then go over the fresh 1579 with Minwax Ebony stain. With a cotton rag, apply the stain and blend it to the color you desire, then remove the masking and seal the covers and king. The key is keeping the Ebony away from the other areas.
