Re: Need Some Guidance on Finishing My First Boat
A bit much, I think. This boat is not a Riva.
Sand down to 180. Clean the surface thoroughly and tack it. Mask off the area. Choose your varnish. Brush on a first split coat of 50/50 varnish and thinner. Let dry 24 hours,sand lightly with 220, clean, tack. Apply second split coat, now 75 percent varnish. Let dry, lightly 220 sand, clean, tack. Now apply 6 coats or so of full strength varnish, lightly sanding and tacking in between each. Last coat be anal about dust in the air,etc. and do not sand it. Done.
