    Thanks for all the comments. A few more coats of the gloss and then wood finish matte then to complete the job

    Epifanes clear satin question

    Refinishing a tiller in clear gloss epifanes varnish. Had about 4 coats on when I mistakenly put a coat of interior satin rubbed effect finish on . It says that this is an interior only product so I assume I need to totally sand all of this satin off before resuming with a few more coats of clear gloss. Any thoughts ? By the way it looks really good ! Better than the gloss imo. Is there a similar satin look exterior varnish I could use as a top coat over the gloss?

    J22 bottom & keel refinishing questions

    I finished spraying on 5 coats of 2000e with the alternating colors . Used 2.75 gal. Have a few runs that will be sanded out. Planning on sanding with the 6in bosch sander using 100 grit. I did a test and It seems to level things quite easily. due to work commitments It will be about 48 hrs after the last coat of 2000e before the first coat of vc offshore. Plan on 3 coats of vc

    J22 bottom & keel refinishing questions

    Thanks Gouvernail . I Have 3 coats of 2000e on now one or two to go. One other question if you don't mind. For the sanding prior to the vc offshore is this usually done with a power sander or should this be hand sanded. Not that keen on hand sanding at this point so am thinking the R.O. is the way to go and just be careful not to go too far

    J22 bottom & keel refinishing questions

    Can anyone advise how much vc offshore is needed for a j22. I only bought 1 gal and thinking it probably will not be enough to put the recommended 3 coats

    J22 bottom & keel refinishing questions

    Well i bought the vc offshore so that is what will go on. I bought a couple of old krebs 35T electric paint sprayers ( never used)from ebay as I have read on a couple boat forums that they work well for applying 2000e and the vc offshore. Hoping they will reduce sanding. Weather here is still 0C so still a couple of weeks away from starting. If anyone ever tried the krebs sprayers would love to hear any pointers. My spraying experience has only been with air syphon guns and car paint

    Well, I am in PEI so the water temperature never hits 86F. I expect our summer water temperature would get to 70's max. We have our boats in for about 4 months June to September so I would think we are at much lower risk of blistering than southern boats in all year or for a long season ?
