Interesting thread on print-through. I seem to have a bit of it on my older boats, and this thread seems to explain why. I manage to avoid it on new boats with my habit of leaving the unfinished boat out in the sun for a several weeks - not out of concern for the finish, but out of laziness. It takes me at least a few weeks to get up the energy to put on the masking tape and start painting.
Anyhow, a good long sunbake, as most of you know, is also good for curing the paint/varnish, as well as for drying cloths, flowers and fish.
