I wet sanded the hull with 400 grit and wiped down with 333. Varnish thinned 10% with penetrol, 10% mineral spirits. Rolled on with 1/8th nap foam roller, tipped out with foam brush, 18" at a time. The stuff went on like buddah! No skttering, no runs, no lap marks or holidays. And it took a quarter the time as previous coats.
Tonight I flip it over and the deck gets the same treatment. The end is in sight.
Thanks to all for the tips and advice.
Supposed to be a nice weekend here. Hopefully I can get the thing wet.
