I'm building a 17LT, and planning to bright finish. Has anyone tried using Epiphane's Gloss Woodfinish? This doesn't require sanding between coats, as long as re-coat is within 72 hours, according to the Epiphane website. I want it to go "pow," but if it's possible to sand less, without sacrificing the look or the durability, would prefer that.
I'm also planning to use graphics, much talked about lately, for the boat's name, and some designs. Do these rice/pattern paper graphics go underneath the epoxy, or the varnish, or either?
Another question: Can I trim the sheer in red paint, like a pin stripe or accent stripe, then varnish over that when I varnish the remainder of the boat, or will that smear the dried paint?
