Prep question for Epifanes Varnish (also which one)
Okay, so know like this is like religion and politics. The damn varnish discussion, again, sort of. I looked at old posts, but could use a hand on prep, once I've got the wood sanded down.
(I took everything off the boat and used Jabsco Paint Remover, and the process has sucked, btw. Will try the heat gun route next time.
Let's say I get to #220 stage, or so. Everything clean.
I'm hearing Use Bleach vs. Oxy___ acid, to lighten the wood.
Second, if I want to fill some holes (which won't be redrilled in exactly the same spot, but close, would you use epoxy or wood filler? Guessing former.
Finally, read two Practical Sailor excerpts. Seems like they recco Epi Wood Finish in one, and in the follow up, say High Gloss.
Which is preferable? I like the idea of adding coats without sanding.
thanks, guys, as always.
