Rid the varnish before...
Posted by Robert N Pruden on Nov 12, 2004
...gluing a strip down. Epoxy will not glue to varnish well and is guarranteed to come off. I added a rub strip to the VJ (my Lightning 17) by power planing the keel off from the tip of the bow/stern to about three feet along the keel. I screwed it down after gluing until the epoxy set, then removed the screws and shaped the strips so that they looked real nice.
I have no opinion on what kind of varnish to use.
