Hello again WoodenBoat Forumers' (is that a word)!
Got a question about my 38' wood mast for Fiberglass BCC. Going to strip and re coat here soon and wanted some input on techniques etc.
First the mast is in excellent condition but the varnish is lifting in some areas and there are a few minor dents from halyard shackles etc. I plan on completely stripping, coating with CPES until it no longer absorbs and then 4-5 coats of varnish... Sound right?
Any thoughts or suggestions on how to make it easier to maintain? I've been turned away from paint because you cannot see through it to notice any damage etc.
Any materials or techniques you prefer over others?
