prep to varnish

Posted by patrick forrester on May 9, 2005

I am just about done with all the major sanding. I am going to put on my last coat of epoxy on the boat, then put on the cockpit coaming, and flush mount hatch covers.

I guess I should sand the entire boat 1 more time with 220 after the final coat of epoxy. Then put on the coaming, and make the hatch covers. Then I should wet sand and start varnishing.

Is 220 a high enough grit ?

Should I not sand after the final coat and wet sand only ?
