Re: Cetol Marine Finish Woes

It's been a year, but I'd like to add my voice to the mix - I have used cetol for almost 5 years and find that the Jenn foam brushes work best - they're available on E-bay. I have not had a problem with air bubbles in the finish, using a light touch, not over-working it on the wood, and keeping a wet edge. Also, I'd add that I use about 2 coats of cetol marine, and then follow up with one coat of cetol gloss, which seems to help maintain the finish longer. I let each coat dry, sand lightly or use a green 3m scrub pad, and then apply next coat. B.
