Went by and checked on the boat yesterday.  No PINK PAINT!!!  It looks wonderful, beautiful raw, sanded mahogany.  It's a totally different boat now.  Where can I order some interior stain samples.  As I mentioned before, I'd like to go a bit darker and redder than the original, but not as much as the exterior.  Can I mix stains to achieve what I'm looking for?  Where s a good supplier? 
 
Also, any problems putting a urethane varnish on the interior?  I'm looking for more of a satin finish. 
 
Thanks

Bobby,
 
I used a Interlux filler stain from Classic Boat Connection.  They have several options of the red mahogany stain as well as the darker brown stain.  Try classicboatconnection.com
 
Good luck
